I don't even know why Bill Meltzer wrote that, it's irrelevant what way you look at it, and it's needlessly complicated by what he has said, we are able to use the entirety of Pronger's salary in cap space, simple.
There is no LTIR in the off-season, so Pronger's salary takes up cap space right now. This reduces how much can be spent, irrespective of how much can be offset when the season begins.
