It comes off the cap for players under 35.

Anaheim has used this numerous times the past couple years with Selanne and Niedermayer. They pretend to be retired, but really they're just sitting out until their cap hit comes down to a level where the team can handle it.

I am guessing that if the Wings and the players they have been extending have some sort of gentleman's agreement that when it gets down to the end there, if the cap is still in place and the player is not earning the cap hit, that they will retire and get off the books.
