White's cap hit to date was just over a million

Brashear's total cap hit was 1.4

The difference is marginal
I suppose I would agree with that, except that in my view White's play when he was asked to be in the lineup was more than marginally better than Brashear's.

Sure, the savings isn't that much, but for the money the Rangers had a player who could step in when needed. Was his cap hit way too high for a 13th forward? Absolutely, but he can still play (a little), unlike Brashear.
