Gaborik has the same salary and cap hit. The salary retention and Gaborik was brought up on the Hotstove last Saturday. Elliotte Freidman reported teams want the Rangers to retain some salary in the trade. The Rangers weren't interested in that. Gorton made that comment to Custance yesterday at the GM meetings. The Rangers retain $2M of the $7.5M. $5.5M for the acquiring team. If the Rangers get back players making $5.5M combined,the Rangers haven't gained any room. If they acquired 2 players for Gaborik,they are using that money on 2 players instead of just Gaborik. Maybe it opens up the number of teams in play for Gaborik.
