Re-entry waivers (the half and half stuff you mention) is reportedly being abolished.

If we put him on waivers, the team that claims him takes on 100% of his cap hit.

But either way...it's not an issue for this year. Even with Gomez counting we have 7.4 M of room in a 70 M cap (which seems like a lock, the NHL keeps proposing it). More than enough to re-sign Subban. Gomez could be in the AHL and still count on our cap in full...and it won't hurt us since I doubt we are buyers anyway.

And yes, there is a KHL-NHL agreement where they respect each other's contracts. Markov can not play in the KHL if the lockout ends.

It's not the same group of skilled forwards though. And it will be a totally different system so I am not sure what happened over a year ago is relevant.
