Markov's salary would be "saved" for four months, but that doesn't mean we can just go up against the cap again as eventually he'll come back "on the cap."

Generally speaking, to get a real rough rule of thumb, I'd anticipate you can count Markov as 50% salary this year for cap purposes. So we save a couple million over the course of the year.

However, I think we were right against it and Bergeron would have put us over. So really, we probably only have 1.5ish breathing room total and teams like to keep that so they can add later if necessary or more injuries occur.
