I'm pretty sure that's how it works. So yea, he wouldn't be on the cap at all.
Teams also can't bury players in the minor leagues for salary-cap reasons, as the New York Rangers have done with Wade Redden and his $5.6 million cap hit. Under the new rules, a player earning more than $900,000 who is sent to the minors still will have his cap hit count against the salary cap.
I think the way it works is the team is given a cap credit of 900k and then anything over that amount counts against the cap. can't find any good examples on capgeek though.
