Every day that passes, he would take up less and less cap space to the team that trades for him. It's also a given that if the Caps traded him, they'd take back a vet contract to help lessen the blow money-wise.
I still don't think he's traded though, and it's going to cost someone much more than fans think it would take to get Kolzig if a team does make a move for him.
