3) Cammalleri has been playing on awful teams, which is why his regular season point total does not reflect his playoff total. Besides, a player how performs well in the playoffs but disappears in the regular season is worth far more than a player who does the oppossite.
So why are the Isles trading a top 5 pick powerwinger for him? Cause he's a Roster PLayer and for one year we can have the luxury of paying him 7m?

Id rather pay Jagr 7m for year and not give up Nino. Or save the Flyers some buyout dough and through them a pick for Briere. Or cash out a wad of singles and fill a kiddie pool with it.
