The 35+ rule is still in effect. If that player retires before his contract is up, the cap hit stays.

They've added penalties to the long term contracts where teams gained any sort of cap advantage from a contract or "manipulated" the contract as you say. The penalties go into effect if the player retires before his contract is up, and the team's cap will be hit according to any cap advantages they gained. There's a lot more to this rule, but basically it penalizes teams who sign/signed players beyond the age they expect them to retire at.
