If you said 'I'll put out J-Bo for the rest of this year and then next year, with a 64.3M cap, he'll cost you 3.3M a year', then I think you get a lot.
Cammallerri done the same way, with a 3M hit, is another one.
BUT, Kipper at 2.925M would be huge too, especially to a cup contender that needed a goalie but didn't have a ton of space.
IMHO, J-Bo and Kipper at half hits yield returns in the ballpark for what you'd get for Jiggy, and Cammy wouldn't be too bad either.
As I said, I think you'd have a fun and youthfully competitive team in 2013-2014 if you moved those three at half hits after Jiggy, then I think it could be as short as one tough season.
Can't trade Kipper though. Elite goalies get traded when a team has two great goalies (Halak, Luongo, Bernier...). If Calgary trades Kipper it could be like the Maple Leafs and be a decade until the problems in net are fixed. The risk is way too high.
