But even if he was ok with it, I don't think there's any reason for a team that is going absolutely nowhere to add a spare part on a 1 year deal making a few million bucks that does nothing for them moving forward

    Agreed. I think they probably want to get Lemieux and/or DeAngelo on longer than 1 year terms. Especially DeAngelo. And they don't have the cap space to do so right now. Requires a cap dump. Namestnikov is the logical player to trade here.

    Namestnikov (retained) + Ryan Lindgren for 2020 mid-round pick-type deal would, I'd hope, grease the wheels for a deal. The incentive is Ottawa gets a decent hockey player to pretend they're icing an NHL roster, a mild bump in the cap at little out-of-pocket cost, plus a cost-controlled asset. Rangers get better roster flexibility and added cap room.

    edit - Burying Smith makes his cap hit 3.275M, so it's 1.075M in savings; Beleskey saves us around another 825k. Basically add 2m to our current cap space assuming both of those outcomes.
    Had no idea.. thought when a player is sent down the majority of their salary gets buried if not the whole thing.

    It used to. It was done away with after the Rangers buried Redden. It was colloquially referred to as "the Redden Rule," in fact.

    Wont happen. Ottawa has an internal cap of around $40M. They’re not adding salary

    I don't think it's worth it to lose Lindgren for that. Maybe if we were dumping a contract like Staal or something with multiple years remaining I could see it. but Vlad has one year left and could potentially get us an asset at the deadline. no need to rid ourselves of a prospect. We have a great pipeline for our Defense, which maybe could make that a little easier to stomach, but why risk giving up a good young prospect to clear a contract thats coming off the books in a year anyway

    What?

    Just trade Namestnikov retained for a 2059 7th-rounder or AHL fodder. You don't need to get value back. The value is dumping the contract.

    Well now you have "Robidas Island" which is when a player just vanishes and is never heard from again lol. Not sent to the minors, just off the team and no one is sure if they're injured, retired, or just sent on a permanent, paid vacation.
