A couple of things to consider.
1. Columbus put him on re-entry waivers which means that they feel they can find a defenceman who makes about $1.8 mil that will be better than Commodore.
2. The Oilers cannot trade him this year without putting him on waivers first. Not only that, but if a team felt they could use Commodore they'd probably just claim him now.
3. In the future, if the Oilers want to rid themselves of the contract via waivers, the team who picks him up is responsible for the cap hit along with Columbus (not bad). If the Oilers have to put him on re-entry waivers, the Oilers and the new team would be responsible for the cap hit (Columbus gets out).
Hmmmm. I may have been wrong here. 2 more years after this and waiving means a 1.8M cap hit? We should give him a pass and play the kids.
Thanks for the info db.
