So we shed part of the salary and part of the cash.
See, that makes more sense. The more I thought about it, the more what I was saying didn't seem to make sense. How would what I was saying be different than trading a guy and sending cash? Which I do believe was more than fine beforehand (although I don't know what limits existed). What you said seems feasible. Equally as confusing (until its acted upon and easier to see the effects of), but more feasible.

That's what I was banking on. Odds are someone would be utilizing this soon, be it Burke, something with Luongo (or both), or the Rangers and Redden.
