edit: looks like you are incorrect:
Aplayer with a 5 mil salary/cap.... will have around 2 mil remaining at the deadline, the dealing team can retain up to 50% of the REMAINING sal/cap.... so the team would only retain up to 1 mil, of the remaining 2 mil

look at Pominville....
Salary=$5.5M, cap hit $5.3M
a per game pay rate=5.3/82=$64,634
If he was on the Minnesota roster for 12 gameshis remaining Salray owed was $775,610
The Sabres took a cap hit of $795,000 this year.
so explain away please
