    Phaneuf and Thompson for Gaborik and Shore. Sens retain 25% of Phaneuf salary.

    But they don't save anything!

    Unless there's a handshake deal for MG10 to quit after this season, they're on the hook for like...300k less?

    Trade seems nigh pointless for both sides, imo. Not sure I get this at all.

    Gaborik apprently has a higher cap hit but less actual salary.

    Melnyk's concern is about costs way more than results

    Gaborik's owed just short of 12m. Phaneuf is owed 18m or so, but the Sens held on to 25% of that. For all intents and purposes, the Sens made this move to save $1.75m?

    They can't honestly think Nick Shore is worth that.

    Don't really get it from LAs end either - the Gaborik contract isn't awesome, but that Phaneuf contract, even w/salary retained, is just...ugly.

    My reaction exactly. Makes no sense to me from either perspective.

    Is it bad that the only reason I’m watching Rangers games is in hopes this happens mid game so I can see it?

    Sens have no money and save over a million dollars, what doesn't make sense?

    My quick math was a little off. It's more significant. Including what players were owed remainder of this season, #Sens will save $5,455,107 in real cash with the transaction - even by eating 25% of Phaneuf contract. Suffice to say, I think this was the key to the deal.

    I'm surprised that Gaborik didn't have one of those trade clauses in his contract where he can pick teams where he would want to be traded to.

    And why did Kings do it? Taking on that horrible contract just to get rid of Gaborik (who was on a better contract)? I dont see Phaneuf helping them much more then what Gaborik could in the playoffs (If they even make it).

    B/c apparently they need help on D and Gaborik is just about done.
