Bickell, Versteeg, Oduya, and Roszival are the most expendable on the roster that would offer any sort of cap relief. 23 and 32 won't bring much cap relief when you consider that anyone moved needs to be replaced. Meanwhile, other teams have little incentive to take 29's contract without sending money back, leaving 27 as one of the best trade options to become cap compliant. Hopefully, the cap ends up being closer to the original projection rather than the most recent one and a trade won't be necessary.
Ideally they could, but I think Q, rightfully, sees the rest of the season as very important. Now's not the time to experiment when the division is still up for grabs.
