Yes it is a salary dump trade, but it was a bad one. The return was bad to begin with, but adding in the money that the Pens are supposed to be saving, is like a stab in the back.

True, but still, spending $3.55 as opposed to $9+ still works in the Penguins favor at this point, for what they wanted to do...shed salary. Sure they are still paying a portion of his salary...but a portion is still less than the total (hmmm, that felt silly writing that!).

Enoch, a fellow Px'er?? Good deal
