No one gives a **** about money in terms of how much Comcast needs to pay out. But don't think for a second that this move was smart moving forward. Gagne was on an expiring contract. We lost that salary cap flexibility when we took on multiple years of, what, 5.3M? That's absurd with Carter, JVR, and Giroux needing to be re-signed over the next two offseasons.
In the NBA, the concept of expiring contracts is huge. Unfortunately, some NHL GMs have not yet figured that out. Yzerman dumped two bad contracts on this team and will be free and clear from all financial obligations at the end of this season and the only thing he lost is a 4th round pick.
