In either case, you're mostly right - it's not the cap space that's the compensation, but the player(s) you get for that cap space.

Unrelatedly, but this made me wonder... how many holes could the Caps fill with $6.7M? They'd lose a huge hole, but...
Pretty much we do. We've been through several offseasons with tons of cap space and we get Poti (excellent at the time) and Knuble.....both bargains, but limited impact.

The Caps have said that they won't play in the high $$ UFA market....what else is there to say?
