By sending Jones ($1,500,000) to the minors, we're still on the hook for $600,000 cap hit, unless he gets claimed. $600,000 is also Hamilton's caphit.

So by keeping Hamilton instead of Jones, we have $300,000 more in capspace.
I don't think that's right. I'm pretty sure the formula for anyone on a one-way is Player's cap hit - $925K unless the player's cap hit is already less than 925K, in which case it's entirely off the books.

Jones to the minors clears $925K of his $1.5M leaving us with $575K on the cap. Hamilton's cap hit is $900K which saves us a whopping $25K (essentially nothing)

If you are offended by this post, it's probably because you're ugly.
