In a happier iteration of the recapture provision's effects, can you imagine if the Rangers bought out the final year of Redden's contract after this season, only to see Scott Gomez retire and the recapture provision putting his $7.357m cap hit (less $625k) back on the Rangers' cap.

It'd serve them right to have $5m+ dedicated to Redden this year (deals over $625k in the AHL will count towards cap now), and then another $6.5m from Gomez on their cap next year.
