    It just makes no sense to me. Wanting to clear space doesn't mean you have to trade for the second to lowest pick.

    I read somewhere that Maloney had talked to MacT about trading for Gagner yesterday. Wanted to think about it, then, called him back. By then, Gagner was on his way to Tampa instead. So, Maloney got ahold of Stevie Y to find out. Steve said he needed Cap room, so, he and Maloney worked out a deal to take both Gags & Crombeen for a low pick. Along with Thompson going to the Ducks, it saves TB around 5 Mil in Cap room. Figures on being aggressive tomorrow with the extra $$$.

    Look at it this way, he trades Purcell, Gagner, Crombeen & Thompson for whoever he ends up with in Free Agency. Bet Chicago or Boston wishes they could do that.

    The only thing the Hockey Central guys on Sportsnet said earlier was Stevie wants to load up on UFAs tomorrow. But then they keep 1/3 of Gagner's salary? Bizarre.

    Does the money they keep apply to the cap, is it just cash?

    It applies to the Cap, Stevie Y said it himself that opening cap space is very difficult and that the deal has opened up 5 mil in cap space

    I guess that was the best deal they could get???

    Purcell's CH + Crombeen's CH = $5.65M
    1/3 of Gagner's $4.8M CH = $1.6M

    They opened up $4.05M of cap space.
