Also, you're talking like Leipold is scheming to move the team to Hamilton. That's JB's bag, not Leipold's. There's enough legal boiling going on that I doubt Leipold wants to bring "bad faith" into all of this.
Of couse he can gut the team more, depending on who he brings in.Lets say they moved Zidlicky for Rob Blake (which I don't think would be a horrible move, they aren't going for it now, bring in a veteran like that to play with Suter and Weber etc...). They just gutted the team alittle more and added 4.85 million to the cap hit.

I do think Leipold is trying to make the easier to move, thus making it a more attractive purchase.
