    How does Salary Cap work???

    Can anyone explain how the Bruins would get relief for players on Long Term Injury?  What exactly constitutes a long term injury?

    If Kessel is not signed until December 1, would his contract be pro-rated for the year, or from Dec 1 on?

    Here's a link to the CBA. Should answer any questions you may have:

    RFA's must be signed by Nov. 1, IIRC, or forfeit the year. The only other option would be Europe.

    FYI the most relavant example starts on page 229 (I think).
    Here is my understanding:
    Say the Bruins start the season with their current team exactly:  They have (I will round for simplicity) $1.7 mil free.  If Kessel were to sign for $4 mil, and miss exactly half of the season, they Bruins' would be allowed to have their Averaged Club Salary exceed the cap by $1.15 mil (half the difference between his total and what they have free).  So to fit Kessel, they would have to move $1.15 mil of salary.

    Anyone enough of an expert to tell me if this understanding is correct?

    Edit:  I am most likely wrong.  None of the examples given involve a player coming back from injury, so it is really confusing.
