You are of course right. The point is that the possibility is there for a quality player to be dumped. Boston went through a complete overhaul last season, gutting the (intriguing) core of Thornton, Samsonov, and Boynton ... what happens if Phoenix, a team that's got a revolving door, has spent money this season, but in such a mind-boggling fashion (loading up on right defensemen, for one), completely fails to produce? They may decide to gut their team in similar fashion.
It's a long shot, but it's an example. Teams
gut their core and trade decent players. I wouldn't have minded Demitra on this Montreal team, for example, and how expensive was he, really?
The point is just knowing that there's a viable option for Montreal to quickly cut the pro team's payroll should an opportunity arise for the club to make some serious improvements; not of the Sykora variety.
