Aplayer with a 5 mil salary/cap.... will have around 2 mil remaining at the deadline, the dealing team can retain up to 50% of the REMAINING sal/cap.... so the team would only retain up to 1 mil, of the remaining 2 mil
I didn't realize the 50% included retaining the 50% cap hit as well. Moving Vanek around 3.5mil right now or at 1.5 mil at the trade deadline should be a lot easier then. We should be able to get more then just Burmi if we trade to a "our window is closing" team. I agree that Stafford should be our main piece, maybe an nhl ready prospect who has a little less talent but isn't head case would work as well. Flynn or Tropp, + a 2nd.
