Del Zotto is top 4 for them, but will he ask for 4 milli on plus from them, once again, a budget team? Zach Smith, a controllable asset for a UFA to be Boyle? Two first round forward prospects a budget team needs?
If Ottawa and the Rangers make a deal it will be NHL player for NHL player. We may
have to retain salary
to make it happen. These trades where teams looking for a shakeup where we get prospects will not happen. Only contenders deal prospects for players like this or picks. Ottawa last I saw had less points than us. Why do they deal future assets when that will be what they try and bring in if they sell off pieces?
You can only retain salary on current contracts, as far as I know. Retaining salary on any of our guys we're likely to see traded won't help unless we're dealing with a team harder against the cap than us.
