At least that's what I assume. I'm just not 100% sure and I don't know if that info is definitively out there. May be determined by the language of the CBA, or I may have missed something.

EDIT: And now I'm searching and can't find anything talking about this type of thing (retaining salary) one way or another. Anyone have any links to articles/reports about any of this? I'm now confused and need to read up on this since I have no idea anymore.
Just wait till Burke (who has been lobbying it for years and pretty much wrote the rule) executes it by paying off salary/cap space to Vancouver for Luongo, we'll all find out how it works then
