This is trading cap space proposed by the PA. Teams going over the cap.

Okay, a little different but largely the same concept. If the Leafs were trade Mike Komisarek to Vancouver and retain $3M of his cap hit and 2/3 of his $3.5M salary, then Vancouver would only be adding $1.5M to their team cap hit for a player with a $4.5M cap hit, which would be pretty much the same as increasing the team's cap space by $3M. So, basically, the Leafs would have traded Mike Komisarek and $3M in cap space to Vancouver.
