The bad contracts cancel out.
The offseason will be a time to determine what to do with Phaneuf and Kessel. I'd be inclined to keep both, though if we could trade Phaneuf for a younger centerman, you'd have to consider it.
That's the challenge making deals by GM's often means trading contracts, it's a wonder any deals are made at all with the cap, The Grabo for Luongo deal is an easy one from a contract point of view.
