You know what, your right. If he leaves it is off the books as he is in the KHL and the salary doesn't hurt the Habs cap. But, one would have to think that the KHL isn't passing out the bucks anymore to guys like Emelin as the cap there dropped last year and I'm thinking that is why Valentanko came back to North America where he is playing in the AHL still with a really young D core in New York playing already.
