He is not a 'casualty of the salary cap' he is a casualty of a declining player being paid as if he was elite. The only travesty here is that this sudden decline of skills happened to a good person like Wade, instead of a selfish, lazy, me-first player with a poor attitude.
The only "travesty" is that he was signed as an elite defenseman when it was clear that his skills were already in a steady (and steep) decline. It was clear from the last two years he played in Ottawa that his skill-set not what it had been. But, I guess the man with the cigar was too busy on the golf course to notice.
