Doesn't work that way. If he were to be claimed on re-entry by toronto, then they place him on re-entry next year and another team claims him, toronto and the claiming team would both be on the hook for 2.5 mil and the devils would be off the hook.

The cap hit can only be halved once, no matter what happens to the player.
