Cap/Contract Type Question

My apologies if this has already been asked and answered previously.

I've been scanning through some of the Gomez trade/Devils cap situation threads and one thing keeps consistantly popping up from all the Devils fans that confuses me - and that is Dan McGillis and whether or not his salary counts towards the Devils final cap numbers or not.

As I understand it, McGillis is slated to make $2.2 mil in the coming season on a one-way contract.

According to Devils' fans, due to the fact that they intend to keep him in the minors, his salary does NOT count towards the cap.

Can someone explain to me if this is the case or not. This doesn't particularly seem to make sense to me, especially considering that McGillis's contract is one-way.

For example, hypothetically speaking and obvious waiver implications aside, say that Tampa assigns Brad Richards to the farm prior to this coming season, does that mean that his $7.8 mil would be off the books for Tampa as well?
