@dlbalr , if the Habs trade a big contract, Like Petry's or Galagher's and retain 50%. Can Weber's LTIR salary relief help keep the Habs under the cap if they go over?

Are retained salaries accounted for like regular salaries?

 

To answer the last part first, yes, they count like regular salary.  Weber's LTIR could be used to cover the overage but if he wasn't on the roster, they wouldn't be over in your scenario.  Weber's contract isn't really an asset that they can get creative with.

 

We know two things - they don't want to retain on multi-year deals and they badly want out of LTIR.  Your idea goes against both of those so I don't think it's a viable option for them.
