Bolded part is nonsense. Yzerman has the go-ahead to spend to the cap ceiling every year. Where did you get that info about an "internal cap" from?

There is no "hidden value" in opening up a huge hole at the #2 center position for 7.7m in cap space. A majority of that extra cap space is just going to go right back into getting a #2 center for the next 6-8yrs (one that probably isn't as good as Vinny). So we get rid of a productive player in the hopes of maybe finding a slight downgrade and enough cap to sign a #4/5 dman.
