<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>BeastModeUnknown</b></div><div>It’s still salary cap they could take for better return for 1, and for 2 you are a buffalo fan so you are being quite bias right now. So I’m just gonna be done with this conversation. There is no changing a bias fans mind ever 🤷🏻‍♂️</div></div>

It's not a bias when I literally don't have any care whether Hutton is on the team or not. He was a throw in to the deal above. If he got taken out and switched for something else it makes zero difference to Buffalo. Coming from a fan of a team that sucked ass for years (still does but that's beside the point) I wish they would have traded for someone like him and picked up a free third rounder because you are getting it for nothing at all in a rebuilding year when it makes no difference whatsoever to your salary cap. I could see your argument if Hutton had 3 years remaining or even if his hit to the cap was something like 5 million, but your logic is flawed because you are viewing it through a team without a ton of cap space and the luxury of a Stanley Cup in your back pocket, that has never tanked like a few teams are doing right now and like many teams have done before. Any tanking team should take a free third rounder for any 1 year deal that isn't going to put them over the cap. It's just smart business. If the deal above doesn't make sense because it's to a contending team, that's one thing. But to say it would take a first to move a 1 year 3 million dollar contract is another and its completely asinine.
