True, but isn't this the same for the team? That is, if Dubinsky is out for half the season, the team can exceed the cap by half of Dubinsky's cap hit.

Is there some way to interpret the rule to say that the team can only exceed the cap WHILE Dubinsky is out? If so, wouldn't that be a little difficult to manage?
