Also, significant or not, it still is negative value in the trade.

"Oh we're trading you our best player? Well can we take your 5 million dead cap hit? Thanks"-A conversation SCott Howson is never going to have with anyone.
dude it's not like bruins fans are low-balling here. I know as a habs fan it's your holy honour to troll bruins fans, but don't you think it'd be worth it for columbus to take on that dead cap for an upgrade in the return for nash? Think of it like a trade:

To Columbus:
Upgrade in Nash-return
To Boston
cap-relief

So to summarise: CbJ gets: Upgrade, CBJ gives up: rien.

doesnt seem that bad to me.
