I think I've heard every sports network refer to it as conditional that he play anywhere this year OR next year (implicit is the understanding that the Islanders are still able to trade his rights as an Islander asset this year OR next year, and that his last NHL contract year would be shifted forward to '13/14 should he sit out the entire '12/13 NHL season). Islanders reap the cap "benefit" (they have to hit the floor, lol) "in perpetuity", in the words of Bob McKenzie.
