As I understand it, the Nucks now have the ability to retain up to 50% of Lou's salary in a trade. This should give the Nucks the needed flexibility to trade him with the quality of the return dependent to some decree on the size of the cap retention.
Ahh interesting. But to note, there were no such caveats to your initial prediction that he would be bought out. As such, how can this not be viewed as a 180 degree change on your initial evaluation?
Firm belief on opposite sides of the fence?
The ability to retain salary, which was speculated before, has made it through. Thus, it opens the door to many possiblities. In addition to taking on buyouts. The field is open.
