A potential loophole with 35+ contracts

Now, this may be something that i've simply not noticed people talking about before but with all the talk around the 35+ contracts and the handcuffs they may give you, what's to stop you just waiving the guy?

Say that Pronger one day becomes useless. We've got about 5 years left with him now and hypothetically imagine that with a year or two to go he's become an expensive pylon - can you just waive him to get him off the cap? Obviously the organisation is still on the hook for the cash itself, but Philly can afford to swallow that.

He counts on the cap no matter what unless he is injured.

Player is waiver and on the farm or if he retires the full cap hit still counts

As a note, he still counts against the cap while injured, the team just gets an LTIR exception for up to his salary.

That actually makes a difference in the case of the bonus cushion. Functionally teams with LTIR are spending *exactly* (to the cent) up to the cap as the LTIR exception on counts for above the cap. When rookies or 1 year vets earn bonuses there's no nowhere under the cap for them to go and they'll automatically carry over into the next year.

How about trade a player like him to a team that has trouble getting to the cap floor. You'd be assuming for such a player that the contract is front loaded so by the time they are 37 or 38+ they get much less than their salary cap hit. (Negates the point of a salary cap if that was the point?)

I would be shocked if Pronger didn't have an NTC or even a No Move.
