So basically its trading part of the salary/part of the cap hit. Can only keep the smaller portion of the salary on your cap, but its better than nothing. Rangers have a better shot at unloading Redden since another team would only be taking 4 mil (roughly) in the cap hit instead of his 5+. Making sure I'm understanding this here.
