Diminishing returns

One more question worth asking about the Kerry Joseph to Toronto trade - though I hope the 'Riders have done their due diligence to make sure that the return they got on paper will materialize.

As Eric Tillman was at pains to point out back when it was reported that the 'Riders were over the salary cap for 2007, the league's audits of team finances aren't going to be available until April. And one of the penalties for exceeding the salary cap is the loss of a first-round draft pick.

So is it possible that a significant chunk of the already-unimpressive return for KJ will vanish into thin air if the Argos turn out to be over the cap?
