However, nothing Wang, Snow or Cappy has said indicates Streit or Vis will be moved, while the isles are in the race.
This move was made with an eye towards what if scenerios:what if the team's out of it at the trade deadline and Snow's getting offers for both impending ufas?
Assuming this cap floor logic on further moves is true, you dont make the move 10 games into the season if you're really going to try and make a push for the playoffs. Unless of course, there's no way Visnovsky ever players in NY and they already know they're moving him immediately after he passes physicals, etc.
Anyway you look at it, it's a puzzling move.
