Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Ken Campbell at The Hockey News:
With Gerber’s current cap hit at $3.7 million, he is virtually untradeable for the Senators. Let’s say, for the sake of argument, the Senators could find a team looking for some goaltending depth for the last two months of the season. Any team wanting to trade for Gerber would owe him $1.4 million for the remainder of the season if it made a deal Feb. 1.
And there’s absolutely no way any team is going to commit that kind of cap space to Gerber. But what if the Senators were willing to pick up half - or more - of the remainder of the contract? Then Gerber might be a more viable option.
The only problem is that isn’t allowed under this collective bargaining agreement.
