I understand with regards to the bonus overages achieved this season; I was answering the question assuming SI meant the overage from last season (2016-17) affects calculations this season's Cap (2017-18); does it mean 75M - 5.3M for the whole season? I don't think it does.i.e. when does this year's hit of last year's overages get calculated? If you subtract the bonus hit (5.37M) and a couple of waiver-exempt players to cut, we're just under 75. But the salary cap is calculated daily based on active NHL roster + IR.

But the salary cap is calculated daily based on active NHL roster + IR.It's a lump sum, just like a buy-out or retained salary. It gets tacked on at the beginning of the season. Think of it like it's like an immovable contract - the pro-rated amount is included with the calculations every day.In other words, yes, it's $75M - $5.37M all season.

Oh thanks. Positioning it like a buyout/retained salary helped me make sense of it.

Nice for an independent doctor to make "Robidas Island' more legit....I don't see Lou getting a doctor to fake this kinda stuff.
