He has to be above the cap floor anyway and there'd be no better powerplay on his part that to get this team to start winning and then keep beating the "we'll move card".



Play Belanger in that role in the interim until a guy like Lander is ready, or trade for/sign said player type. You might break even in real $, but it opens the ability to acquire better players or picks due to having the cap space to be creative.
Well there was talk that bonuses would count towards cap so there goes your cap floor.

Fact remains it's 8.5mil for nothing or 13mil or about a 2.5m-3mil player for 3 years.
