P.S. Looking at cap hit of Mats Sundin for the Canucks, it does look like cap hit is indeed prorated.
It may be different for waivers (or in this case as it stands now recall waivers for Legace).
If a player subject to recall waivers is assigned to the minors by Team A and claimed on recall by Team B, then both A and B split the salary and cap hit; if B then waives the player for assignment but Team C claims the player, then both A and C split the salary and cap hit. If B successfully waives the player and assigns him to the minors [A and B split his salary, but he carries no cap hit unless he's subject to the "35 and older" clause] and then B recalls the player and he's claimed by Team C, then B and C will split the salary and cap hit and A has no further obligation.
I cannot find anything (yet) on if the cap is pro-rated for the acquiring team.
