Oh wow. It sounds so wrong, but per capgeek:

Per Exhibit 8 of the CBA (Section 5, P. 270), suspended players who are considered "repeat offenders" affect a team's salary cap differently from "first-time offenders." A repeat offender is a player whose suspension is the second or more within 18 months.

Repeat offenders lose the following salary:

[ Cap Hit - Performance Bonuses ] / [ Games in Season ] * [ Number of Games Suspended ]

First-time offenders lose the following salary:

[ Cap Hit - Performance Bonuses ] / [ Days in Season ] * [ Number of Games Suspended ]

Per section 50.10-c (P. 226) of the CBA, salary and bonuses that are not paid to suspended players do not count against the cap, meaning the above formulas translate directly into a team's cap savings.
CBA Reference: Exhibit 8 (Section 5, P. 270) and 50.10-c (P. 226).

So that's [1,100,000] / [82] * [5] = $67,073

The Jody Shelley suspension saves the Flyers $67,000 in cap space! Whoo-hoo! Thank you Jody! Cooter fits under the cap all season now! This is the best thing you've ever done for our team!
