Not saying every team does this, but say Calgary moves Iggy and goes full rebuild. The owner is a billionaire.

What's J-Bo worth at a 3.3M cap hit for this year and next to your contending team?

What's Cammy worth at a 3M cap hit for this year and next to your rebuilding team?

Think about that. If a team like Calgary, for example, moved Iggy (because he wanted a chance to play for one more cup) and then put J-Bo and Cammy out there at those cap hits, they'd reap an absolute bounty that would accelerate a rebuild far more than would've been the case under the old CBA.

****, Kipper at 2.9M anyone?
