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.
Sounds like a good plan. The key is, if Gagne's in, that pretty well means they're sending Laughton back to Oshawa. They really don't need both. Laughton has to be 3LW or 4C.

Laughton [Gagne?]-Couts-Read
Talbot-Hall-Rinaldo

or

Talbot-Couts-Read
Rinaldo-Laughton-Hall

Hall could take defensive zone draws?

There is no room for Gagne unless someone else is leaving or Hall/Rinaldo are being scratched regularly.
