And to those saying we'll trade Gabby in the offseason, that may be, but do you want to trade him with other teams knowing that we have to trade him to get under the cap? Do you want to run the risk of losing one of our RFAs because we can't afford to match an offer sheet?
Play it safe. If they intend to trade Gabby, trade him first, THEN spend the cap savings.
They aren't THAT close to the cap for next season. It should be a thought but if they like someone like Stoll or Glencross who has term beyond this season and feel they can be part of the organization for multiple years then the trade is fine. What's the difference between bringing them in and keeping them or going after Clowe or another UFA in the summer?
