For simplicity's sake, if 40% of the season remains, his new team would only be on the hook for 40% of his total salary for this year.

Hypothetically, New Jersey could add Kaberle without sending back an NHL contract. Doing so would pretty much eat up all their remaining cap space for this year, but it's unlikely they would make another trade after that.
You're forgetting the LTIR cap relief from Brodeur, Rolston, Holik, and Greenes injuries. LTIR can be activated retroactively for the period the player was injured, and for the sake of argument if Brodeur comes back March 1st the Devils will have an extra $5.3M to work with in addition to that 1.8M.

That is very true.

As much as I'd like the Devils to get Kaberle or Kubina, there's no way they let go of Zajac.

Do you think Burke would be interested in Clarkson and a package of a pick and prospect for one of the two D? Clarkson would be in his hometown and he is a Burke type of player. Just throwin' it out there, I think Clarkson has definitely improved his game this season.

He would be the leading scorer on more than half dozen teams in the NHL - more points than some notable centers like Eric Staal, Chris Drury, Olli Jokinen and Scott Gomez. Zajac has only 3 fewer points than Henrik Zetterberg and makes $900K @ 23 years old

Asking for Zajac is offensive.
JimEIV does his homework.

Consider Zajac untouchable.
