Take a team with no LTIR candidates. They use their full 10 percent cushion in the offseason. On day 1 of the new season, they slide ELCs back to juniors or waiver-exempt players to the AHL, no? They aren't cap compliant before Day 1--they become cap compliant on Day 1.

Isn't that the same for LTIR?
I am no CBA expert but I believe at whatever time the season starts, Chris Pronger's salary counts against the cap. So before that start time, the Flyers have to be cap complaint, so any use of the 10% has to be gone at that time. Once the season begins, Pronger can go immediately on LTIR. Then his 4.9 mil becomes eligible to use. That's my understanding of it.
