Just think, the cap space saved could have actually gotten the Flames someone worthwhile while the Devils and Kings fought over Kovalchuck.

Yes, it doesn't look great offensively in comparision but it also looks worse defensively. Just imagine Nystrom and Backlund on the PK.
Hindsight is an amazing thing.
