What are you talking about? Seriously.

An NHL franchise only needs to ice a 20-man roster. They can hold other players on their roster if they choose, but it's not a necessity.

How the salary cap works is, if a player is brought up do to an injury, the amount of money they'd earn against the cap would only reflect the amount of time they were on the roster. I'm not positive if it's games played or days, but if for instance Morin came up and played 2 games, his full .866M caphit wouldn't count towards the amount of cap used by the Blackhawks, only a small portion of that would, relative to the amount of time he was on the roster.
