$1.3 million $saving$ for Isles on Rolston/Mottau trades
Per CapGeek, Bruins add $1,094,595 in cap space by adding Rolston and $172,973 for Mottau. Both will be be unrestricted at the end of the season.
Isles save approx $1,081,081 in salary to Rolston and $205,405 on Mottau (salary differs from cap hit -- Mottau cap hit is $800k for season but being paid $950k).
So the Isles trade two players not part of their future, save $1.3 million doing so, and then add two players who could potentially develop -- or at least help Bridgeport's Calder Cup run.
