How would it work if he were to get claimed then traded? would his cap be 2.5 or 5mil, because if you could trade him for 2.5mil some teams could be interested.
That scenario unfolded last year for another former NJD, Jay Leach. He was picked up on re-entry by MTL and later traded to SJS. Even when in SJS, NJD retained half of his cap hit on their books, but MTL was able to transfer their half to SJS because as part of the trade.
