Under the CBA, any player who suffered injuries from NHL play during the previous season that prevents them from playing the following season can be put on the long-term injury list and their salary wouldn't count against the team's cap.
I suppose it will depend on how universal the 35+ age clause is. Teams may be responsible for all risks associated with signing old players, including long term injuries.

At any rate, even if Snow manages to get himself taken off the cap, it will only be for a limited period of time. The second he is cleared as healthy, he counts.
