This is a weird question that relates to Hossa later in the contract.

Say the shoulder injury continues to bother him as he starts heading to the late years of the contract... Can the Hawks put Hossa on LTIR, pay him while receiving cap relief due to the injury, and just use it as a loophole to not have it count against the Cap?

It seems to be a way to circumvent the later years of the contract. They could use it as an extension to the cap basically by paying him the money w/o actually having it show up against the cap due to injury.

I can honestly say i'm clueless when it comes to detailed contract information. Would that be a loophole or would it just not work?
