If we retain 3 mil and get a player making 3 mil, that will be a 1.5 mil savings, which would give us a little breathing room next year. And the following year, Gabby's 3 mil would be off the books.
Got it, thanks.

Gaborik at an AAV of 5m should be attractive to many teams. I have faith in Sather and Gorton to accept nothing less than a quality package in return. Think about what we could have gotten for Gomez if we retained a few mil, we probably could have gotten Gainey to give up Max Pac as a throw in
