The 300k is completely irrelevant. You have over 7 million in space and any trade for someone near that cap hit (i.e. Nash) will have salary (i.e. Dubinsky) going the other way anyways. The Rangers will finish the season with unused cap space no matter what happens these next few days.

At this point, Avery in the AHL or Avery on another team is the same exact thing for the Rangers.

If they can gain good favor with another GM/team for free, why not?
