Freeing up roster space: Rivers to Phoenix for 7th round pick

Frees up an extra roster spot (or $450,000, which is what Rivers makes). Mirtle thinks they could be going for Brendan Witt. We'll find out soon enough. Update (3:04 PM): Well, if they were going for him, they didn't get him. Witt was traded to Nashville for a first rounder and forward Kris Beech.

$450,000 is the minimum wage of any NHL player. Trading a $450,000 player does not free up $450,000. It merely frees up a roster spot. This roster spot will have to get filled with a player. This player will cost a minimum of $450,000.
