GMs know these players won't play their contracts out until the end, and even if they do, they can be traded to a cap floor team at the end of their contract when they make peanuts in actual salary.

One has nothing to do with the other...Big difference between a goalie and any other position when you have 2 but can only play one...That's a lot of money for a back up goalie...Vancouver playing Lu and Schneider at the same time are they? If not then IATL's point still stands..
