This doesn't quite make sense. He should continue on the IR from last year, like with Crosby. I heard McGuire explaining that because Crosby was on it last year, and simply re-confirmed to it this season, the usual minimum time he had to be out etc. doesn't count. Maybe that's what happens when they do it retroactively. Regardless, it's hard to believe they'd have his salary counting against the cap when he's been out so long.
