That means a few things. First of all, Vokoun will be dealt for either young player(s), very cheap player(s) and/or picks. You won't see a guy like Boynton or Richards coming this way. Second, it means that Vokoun will come cheaper then normal.

The only reason we'd be dealing Vokoun is not that we want to start Mason instead, but rather we want to trim payroll.
that makes sense.... however if richards came over and we took vokoun AND arnott et al...there would still be a salary dump there of almost 3M and nashville would actually get a great player in return that hasnt even hit his prime yet.
