If it's a one year contract, the Rangers could dump Lilja in the minors and his cap hit would not count against the cap. I'm pretty sure the first year of a 35+ contract, regardless if its a one year or a multi-year deal, would not count against the cap if they are waived and sent to the minors. Kinda like what happened with Brashear last season. It's the subsequent seasons that count.

Not a 100% though.
