Any 1 way contract worth more than 900k per season that is sent to the AHL will penalize your team's salary cap.

A popular example: Wade Redden.
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: http://capgeek.com/rangers/ (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.
And you should know that Olesz still counts against the cap if you have him in the AHL.
