After this season he makes:

9 million
8.5 million
8.5 million
7 million
1 million
1 million
1 million

He makes 12 million this year.

That would mean he would have an internal cap hit of 5.14 million over the next 7 years. A lot more reasonable than the close to 7 he signed to begin with.
After next year (2013/2014) he would have 6 years remaining:
  • 8.5 million
  • 8.5 million
  • 7 million
  • 1 million
  • 1 million
  • 1 million

Cap hit - $6,667 M
Actual salary - $27 M ($4,5 M per)
Couldnīt the Rangers also retain part of the salary and then deal him to a cap floor team wanting cap space but not wanting to pay $$? If he waves his NMC? It is maybe too much of a hassle

An amnesty buyout like RB said would mean $18 M paid out over 2 years and no cap hit. Probably the best for all parties if he does not get his game back and continues to deteriorate. We will see. Lots can happen until then...
Might be the bullet Dolan has to bite?
