Well from the sounds of the article you'd be partially wrong because it sounds like about $3M of the exception was used on a previous trade.

That is definitely true and is frustrating. When we got the TPE we were told it was a very valuable trade piece; the fact that several teams have them seems to lower its value, but it still looked like teams would be willing to shed decent players due to the impending lockout. Instead it looks like we're going to get almost nothing for it.
