Vladimir Malakhov ($3.5 million) got a 1st round pick in the summer before 2006-2007, back when the cap was $44M.

Roughly the equivalent of $5.5 million under todays cap (8% of total cap) .

One thing to note was that Malakhov was suspended, so the team acquiring him didn't need to pay him salary, they just had to be responsible for his cap hit.
