I disagree. Tallon would still have traded Booth because he's not worth anywhere near $4.25M. He's got good work ethic but he's not that special. And the reason why this is totally different from Booth is that Clemmer's $1.2M cap hit is minor crap relative to Booth's $4.25M. Also, whoever has Booth can sit him for a couple of games with virtually zero effect on the team if he's not doing well, unlike Clemmer, there's only one other option, injuries and bad play have a proportionately greater effect in goalie position.
