I think that's precisely why such a deal would never happen with Buffalo.

I could maybe see the Jets making a move at the trade deadline if they figure we're out of the playoffs. Antropov is a UFA after 12/13 and if he indicates he's not interested in signing with us again, you trade him while he still has value.

But in that kind of move you're looking for prospects / picks, which are going to come at a lot less than $4mil / year. And with Buffalo being right up against the cap, they can't make that kind of deal.
