the point is that if an injury takes a major caps player out for the rest of the season, mcphee will have the flexibility to replace that player by way of a trade. lets say wideman goes down with a broken ankle. ltir will allow mcphee to acquire a defenseman at wideman's salary to replace him for the playoffs.

last season mcphee gave two center roster spots for developement with the idea that he could fill those slots with playoff veterans at the deadline if he needed to. johansson worked out while the fleischmann/perreault slot failed and arnott was brought in to fill that slot. as best i can tell, mcphee has every slot on the team filled with an established player and no need for deadline aquisitions as of today.
