And I say this as somebody who has been against JBo from the start, but salary isn't a huge factor I'd wager. My primary concern would be that whatever prospect we give up would go on to a fruitful career while JBo continues to be an underwhelming top pairing defender.

At least if we go broke on Gaborik I know the dude is going to be an amazing sniper.
That cap hit could prevent us from being able to re-sign just our FA's unless we unloaded some salary going the other way.

As it is its going to be tight signing Brunner, Flip, Howard, and our RFA's.

Add a #3 Defenseman making 6.8 million and it could be disaster for the team.
