WASHINGTON - APRIL 28: Maxim Lapierre #40 of the Montreal Canadiens is hit by Joe Corvo #77 of the Washington Capitals in Game Seven of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2010 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at the Verizon Center on April 28, 2010 in Washington, DC.

Corvo's cap hit is $2,250,000 next season. He put up 11-29=40 totals last season in Carolina.
This announcement comes moments after Carolina signed Tomas Kaberle for....a lot of money for three years. The Bruins look like winners here. Kaberle had four goals and 42 assists for the Bruins/Leafs last year in the regular season. Essentially they're paying less money for a one-year older guy that can produce nearly as well as Kaberle did.
