Sorry, but Sammy is not off the books. His salary is still counting against the cap, he won't be picked up and we need to trade him so even if we waive him a 2nd time and he is claimed we will be stuck with 1/2 of his salary next year...we can't be stuck with half off that salary against our cap next year.

We need the cash to sign Souray (like him or hate him, he is our leading goal scorer and point leader and is needed here). Markov, he is needed here badly. Our best two way Dman and potentially a Norris candidate if he can put a season together like Sheldon's. We also need to re-sign Kommy, Higgins and Ryder who are RFA's.

If Gainey can screw someone over to take Sammy's contract and not take too much salary in return he is a genious, I don't see 29 suckers out there though.
