So they did get the cap recapture rule in. I quickly read the above on twitter but didn't have time to read thoroughly. This is good, I like this rule better than no rule against back diving contract as in previous CBA or the signing club being responsible for entire cap hit like originally proposed by NHL.
One thing I'd like clarification on is, if the Canucks trade Luongo to Florida and take part of his salary do they have to take that amount in his cap hit as well ??
Edit, this is what I found. This was the original proposal
In the context of Player Trades, participating Clubs will be permitted to allocate Cap charges and related salary payment obligations between them, subject to specified parameters. Specifically, Clubs may agree to retain, for each of the remaining years of the Player's SPC, no more than the lesser of: (i) $3 million of a particular SPC's Cap charge or (ii) 50 percent of the SPC's AAV ("Retained Salary Transaction"). In any Retained Salary Transaction, salary obligations as between Clubs would be allocated on the same percentage basis as Cap charges are being allocated. So, for instance, if an assigning Club agrees to retain 30% of an SPC's Cap charge over the balance of its term, it will also retain an obligation to reimburse the acquiring Club 30% of the Player's contractual compensation in each of the remaining years of the contract. A Club may not have more than two (2) contracts as to which Cap charges have been allocated between Clubs in a Player Trade, and no more than $5 million in allocated Cap charges in the aggregate in any one season.
