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.
But if the player has no intention of trying to play again then I don't think that applies. If he was on the disabled list then once he was able to play he'd have to play n'est-ce pas? So since dealing with Charles Wang(wow what a wang!) is pretty much a full time job, then Garth would be hard pressed to play 20-30 games a year.

Also it's not like the Islanders were going to spend to the cap limit anyways, nor would it give them any chance of making the playoffs if they did with a genius like Darth Snow at the helm.

From what I have heard- the team plans on appealing the salary counting against the cap. Snow cited the fact that he probably would not be able to play from the start of the season- and thus he would make it via the injury clause in the salary cap. I think it will be interesting to see if the money counts against the cap. $900K may not seem like a lot, but it still is something. Hopefully they will get it off the books for the upcoming season.

CBA says the Averaged Club Salary (measured against the cap) includes, among others,:

50.5(d)(i)(B)(5) All Player Salary and Bonuses earned in a League Year by a Player who is in the second or later year of a multi-year SPC which was signed when the Player was age 35 or older (as of June 30 of the League Year in which the SPC is to be effective), but which Player is not on the Club's Active Roster, Injured Reserve, Injured Non Roster or Non Roster, and regardless of whether, or where, the Player is playing, except to the extent the Player is playing under his SPC in the minor leagues, in which case only the Player Salary and Bonuses in excess of $100,000 shall count towards the calculation of Averaged Club Salary;
