That's the issue in the way of buying out Pronger at the moment (for me).

Argh. Can't find the language in the current CBA, but here's a quote from the Cap Geek site:

The amount of relief is limited to the amount the team has gone over the cap (less the amount of payroll room the team had at the time the LTIR transaction took place), not the entire amount of the injured player's salary.

I deride your truth handling abilities
