He makes $6.5 mil per year on a 1 way contract. The Rangers have him in the AHL.
Since he is making more than 900k, his cap hit partially counts towards the Rangers salary cap.
$6.5 mil - 900k = $5.6 mil cap hit against the Rangers.
It is shown on capgeek as well:
(look under buyouts)
Also, re-entry waivers are gone!
Edit: And we're not trading cap space/salary this game, because I have yet to fully understand how that will work in the NHL.
