As other posters have pointed out, his caphit isn't much of a concern.

The only pitfall here is giving Calgary good pieces to speed along their inevitable re-build. I'm definitely not ok with giving them anything more than a 2nd round pick and a middling prospect for what will amount to 2 years of J-Bo.
The concern is that a better piece becomes available over the next two years that we want to lock up for an extended period of time. Next year we have lots of contracts (Hall, Eberle, Gagner, Smid, Whitney(?), MPS(?), Lander(?)) that we need to decide what to do with, not to mention some prospects that will be challenging for a position. I would rather hold-off than make any hasty changes to the commitment to a solid rebuild.

As for a $7M caphit for 2 years not being a concern??? That takes away the ability to add an ALL-STAR player at any point in time over the next two years. Not to mention the point you made of giving Calgary a prospect...let them suffer.
