And it would still be more cost effective and better asset management to continue paying Vinny and play the asset we'd take at three. Naming guys on their last legs or a player who is about to be grossly overpaid (Bickell) and suggesting the league is just going to sit by and allow the Lightning and Habs to game the system in a cap circumventing trade and sign is neither realistic nor an upgrade over keeping Vinny and the third.
