Rolston is the living breathing proof that Wang hires short term salary plugs so he doesn't get locked into any long term salary hits above the cap floor.
Sucks to be us.
Look no further than the banter around Kovalchuk and a 1 year, 10 MM per deal.
Short term deals that bring the Isles to the cap floor.
I personally believe that a Gomez deal would be taken if it could be made where the Isles are trying to get to the cap floor.
It's EXACTLY a Wang deal..... save 2MM annually in actual salary while circumventing the cap floor. Any support for the league around such a deal would be an equally large disgrace.
