Yes free agency has recently given us such wonderful contracts as: Scott Hartnell, Danny Briere, Chris Pronger, Michael Leighton, Jody Shelley and Kimmo Timonen, who apparently isn't worth what we're paying him so everyone whats to see him moved.

And because of those great free agent acquisitions, we're had to give away young talent like RJ Umberger and Scotty Upshall and a number of 1st round picks.

So again cap space is not preferable to players you already have that work well in your system. Kimmo Timonen is better right now than any defender that would be on the open market. You want a goalie? So do I. You don't need 6 million to get that. Trade someone less vital to the team please. Matt Carle @ 3.4 comes to mind.
