Thomas got conditional 2nd round pick on condition that he plays. He will not, so value of dead cap space is 0. If Islanders would need to PAY Thomas - no way they do that trade. And this is temporary 1 year solution for them. I hardly see teams taking on long contracts to pay real dollars just to get to cap floor.
