No one is advocating that in any way. But if he somehow gets an award that does not work under the cap then he's a UFA.
Worst case is that this gets guys like Dumoulin, Samuelson, Ruopp, Harrington and maybe even McNeil, Seymour and D'Agostino could get a call up?
The only thing that could potentially bother me is again getting nothing for a decent prospect but it's not like there's a lack of big defensemen in WBS to replace him as a #7 on this team.
