Similiarly then placing Kolarik there would save around $350.000.
Total savings would be around $2,3M using this "loophole" (not exactly that...)
This adds up being a prorated amount of over $11M!!! in salary (in addition to ev capspace times 5 from the rest of the roster) to be able to add at the deadline...
Not sure if this is a good or bad thing - knowing our GM.
I would not be surprised if we are doing good - that Sather makes a big splash at the deadline - adding the likes of maybe one or two of Igilna (at what cost?), Doan, Hemsky, Sarich, Souray... almost all pending UFAs (of course depending on where their teams are at the deadline as well) with playoff like veteran characteristics (not sure Hemsky counts here).
Question is - what will the price be?
Time will tell...
I don't think that works... You cannot save up LTIR money.
