If the cap really does go down into the $55 million range, then we're talking about Leino's deal taking up 8% of the cap, and I'm not sure he's worth that much, even when he's playing well.
Under a $70 million cap, then he's probably worth the $4.5 mil per cap hit.
Yeah, I'm assuming a one-time, use-it-or-lose-it clause that wipes the cap hit from the books completely.
