Something has clearly gone over the head of my sensitive friend from down under.... You even said it yourself... the Blues may not be able to give away Tkachuk and Weight. So, what exactly the benefit in trading them (assuming they'd waive their NTC)?

Chances are they'd still have a third of their salaries on the books and get very little in return.

It would be much more intelligent for them to enter the new CBA hoping that the larger contracts get grandfathered in. If they don't, they dump them then... and get very little in return with a third of their salaries on the books.
