This year, if he plays in the NHL he will make $650K in the NHL or if he plays in the AHL, about 80K again.
The year after, he gets a guaranteed $850K since he's on a one way NHL deal. His cap hit, however, will be $750K when he's playing in the NHL.
Thanks for the breakdown. I guess I was more referring to his NHL cap hit, as it's the one which effects the Canucks cap abilities. His salary goes up, but his cap hit goes down from $900K to $750K. How the heck did that work?
