He's really not making that much against the cap. 2.33M for a quality penalty-killer who may be able to chip in 25 points on a third line with more oppurtunity? Yeah, I think a team would take a chance on that.
Good point. My train of thought was something along the lines of contending teams passing over him because of his cap hit which would be a major handcuff next year considering the cap is going to go down significantly, and the reasoning that any team that would be able to fit him under probably wouldn't be in the market to trade for what is essentially a spare part.

I think that any kind of return that another GM would realistically offer up probably isn't worth shipping him out for considering how good of a PKer he's become.
