I can't think of 1 team in this league that would have received 3 players for a back up goalie. I know JB should not be a back up, but you get my point. Very nice deal by DL. More depth is always a good thing.
Solid return, I like this trade. Frattin has decent potential to play either wing. Scrivens will do for now and a pick. Both decent cap hits and both contracts up in 2014.
NOw that they traded cap space....can you trade cap space for just a player. IE...you have a defenseman that a team wants and they are willing to give a 3rd so you counter (as the cap is tight and you have players to sign) with a 4th rounder but you want 800k in cap relief. Can you do that?
Or can you trade a player for just cap relief or does a player have to come back?
I guess what I am asking is the "cap relief" actually Toronto paying 500k of the players salaries and that is why we have cap relief, or do they actually give us 500k of their cap?
