I'd like to correct myself regarding the cap hits of Cliche and Clune. After reading IB's blog entry from the 11th, it appears that while Clune and Cliche do count against the Kings cap, their full NHL salary does not count against the cap. For players like Clune and Cliche,
(a) For the immediately preceding season, determine the number of Regular Season days the Player spent on the Club Active Roster, Injured Reserve and/or Non-Roster and on a minor league club’s roster.
(b) The number of days the Player was on an NHL Club's Active Roster, Injured Reserve and/or Non-Roster or minor league roster is then divided by the total number of days in the immediately preceding Regular Season to obtain a fraction.
(c) The fraction obtained in (b) is then multiplied by the Player’s Paragraph 1 NHL Salary and Paragraph 1 Minor League Salary for the current season, as appropriate.
Since Clune and Cliche didn't spend any time with the NHL teams IIRC, their minor league salaries are being counted against the Kings cap.
