Should I cut Jumbo Joe?

I have him in a salary cap dynasty league (his cap hit for this upcoming season is $8M), and I'm really up against the cap with Johansen and Arvidsson yet to sign. Both are going to get huge raises. I know that Thornton was a point per game two years ago, but he really struggled fantasy wise this past season. He turned 38 earlier this month, and he's coming off a serious knee injury. I put him on the trade block, but I have not gotten any offers for him.

I have two options: trade other members of my team, or just flat out cut Thornton. It is a 16 team dynasty. I am currently $7.3M under the cap, but that is without Johansen's contract and Arvidsson's contract. It is a category H2H league with too many categories to list. I already traded Fowler and Ovechkin to save some cap, but I'm still going to be over.

What stats are in the league?

Besides pts, Thornton provides very little else. 81 shots last year? Few hits. 50 PIMs is fine.

For 8 M?

I was in a cap league and I cut him. You can better spend that money elsewhere.

Hits, blocks, takeaways, faceoffs plus your basic stats minus penalty minutes...

I sent out offers to every single team asking for a 2nd rounder, and one of them accepted. At least I got something for him.

Nice trade, way to sell high-- could have been easily forced to cut him.
