2) Provided that the Upper Limit (otherwise in layman's terms as "salary cap") for the 2009-2010 NHL season is $56.7M
3) Assuming that Demitra is deemed by the Club Doctor to be ineligible to play due to medical injury for a period of longer than 10 games AND 24 calendar days and is placed on LTIR on the day prior to the start of the Regular Season.
4) Provided that Demitra's average salary is $4M for the 2009-2010 NHL season.

For the duration of time that Demitra is on LTIR, the Canucks will be allowed to exceed the "salary cap" by the amount of Demitra's salary. Once Demitra is deemed to be medically cleared to rejoin the active roster, the Canucks will need to shed any necessary salaries in order to be compliant with the $56.7M Average Club Salary.
Repeating what I have said certainly emphasizes my point that there is no cap savings. Thank you. I am glad that you concur.
