It's easy for us to say this, but imagine being DL and going to the owner and saying "I'd like to acquire this guy for the rest of the season, which is about 10 games. We'd almost guaranteed to be buying him out after the playoffs as we hardly have any cap room anyways, so it'll cost us about $3.5 million for 10 games and the playoffs. You're cool with that , right?"

DL's been lucky to be able to spend to the cap, but picking up a player knowing the odds are pretty good you'll be buying him out in three months or less isn't likely something anyone above DL would like to much.

Not at all. If those things were happening, we'd be leading this series (maybe even swept it again) and we wouldn't have any need for this thread at all.
