My understanding is that if a player is in the last year of his contract which was signed prior to him turning 35, the team has the ability to send him down to the minors and not have his salary cap hit count for that entire year (just as Darius Kasparitis and Wade Redden were sent to the minors by the Rangers over the past few years). Is this correct? Would the Devils be able to free up more cap space next season by sending down Colin White, Bryce Salvador, and even (hypothetically of course) Martin Brodeur? Just a thought as there seems to be a lot of concern about not having the cap space to resign Parise, but sending White and Salvador down would free up close to 6 million in itself. What are your thoughts?
