My point was that if you are going to essentially dump Kane's salary as you suggested, today, after July 1, then you'd leave us with a ton of free cap space but during a period when it is too late to efficiently spend it. The players we'd want to spend some of that free cash on have already been signed elsewhere, and if that is the option then I'd rather have Kane versus going with an 19 y/o replacement that is a few years away from matching his output and a future pick that may take years to pan out.
