Ehats the cap implication of he retires early? I heard it hits the preds not the habs, which seems weird to me.

There’s a bit of confusion there, actually. I’m not entirely sure if there’s no penalty to Montreal, or if they have a penalty on the two years they’ve had him, which would amount to $8.2 million saved. But they’re buying that down starting next season, as his actual salary finally sinks below his cap hit. So that’ll be either gone or insignificant moving forward, if it hits them at all.

Nashville’s a very different situation. He played four years there, made $56 million while only counting for roughly $31.5 milion against the cap. That $24.5 million is going to be hanging over the Predators until the contract is over. If he retired tomorrow, he’d count $3 million against their cap for the rest of the contract, 8 years. Each year going forward, that amount will go up.
3.5×7
4.08×6
4.9×5
6.125×4
8.16×3
12.25×2
24.5×1 

So, really ugly, if he decides to actually retire at any point, rather than go on LTIR.
