While you may not get a lot of NHL-ready talent for $900,000 and it likely won't be a make or break cap number — though if the CBA changes, it may be a contract you don't want to be holding — that money can buy a lot of real-world benefit spent in other areas.
I can't tell if you're serious or not.
Players have made far more in the AHL before. And considering we'll be nowhere near the cap ceiling, 900K for a year should be absolutely no issue at all. If you want "other assets" just add another 900K, not take it away from another player. Why can't we have both?
