    This has been discussed on the Devil's board and the NHL Talk board with respect to Lou being over the cap and how Elias salary is counted.

    A post there brought back up a quoted section of the new CBA, and I thought it might be interesing to revisit it since it is a bit more detailed (and confusing) than the snippet in the CBA FAQ.
