That's not savings at all with the lenth of Kaspar's contract. I doubt the player the Caps would get will be Lundmark. even though he has been a scratch lately. The player will likely come be either Kovalev, Carter, Poti, or Kasparitis. I suspect that it will be Carter.
Kaspar's contract is for another 3 years after this one at 4.2 mil each. Jagrs contract is for 44 mil after this year, Kaspars is 12.6 mil.
20 mil in cash + 12.6 mil = 32.6 mil which still saves the Caps 11.4 mil. overall.
