I don't suspect it would be all that difficult to move Mezsaros, but if it is, why not retain 1 million of his hit to make it more pallatable?

I'd rather retain 1 million this year than be forced to include assets to move Mez. Mez makes 4 million. If Gagne makes more than 2 million, it's a travesty. Therefore, even if we retain 1/4 of Mez's hit, we'll be under the cap with Gagne and the rest of our assets while still having the in-season flexibility of the LTIR money.
