It led to a more productive trade deadline in terms of the names that were moved. And if you trade a guy, and retain 50% of the cap, the next guy can trade him and retain 50% of the cap. Devan Dubnyk is only on the Habs cap for 25% of his remaining cap hit. Part of the reason is because it was too hard for some teams at the cap to make trades.
