I think theres more risk with the prospects..
If the NHL has the desire to stick with their plan of requiring the cap hit to stay on the books for the duration of a contract, regardless if a player is playing or not, then Roberto carries a lot of extra risk. It will be the same in the AHL as well, as players making over an x amount of dollars will count against a team's cap.

This has been outlined in proposals made by the NHL in one variant or another.
