If Ovechkin bounces back that deal is even given he still eats so much salary/cap. If he doesn't bounce back the Isles lose just on the cap/salary commitment, let alone all the other assets given up.

The isles aren't a contender this year, they can afford not to go all in. There could be a few good UFAs signing cheap, plus cap dumps and cheap trades this offseason - spend the money there and keep the assets.
