Quite the opposite this time.

Skinner will no longer be on his ELC
Faulk will have only one year left on his
Semin will become a free agent again with nothing to go off of to re-sign him
We'll lose a prime year for the Staals, Pitkanen, and Ward

basically the only positive is cutting a bit of the dead weight off the roster that will be off the roster after next season to begin with.
