Recapture Calculator Results

If Marian Hossa retires or defects in the 2017 off-season (age 38 as of July 1 that year) and is not traded before doing so, following is an estimated breakdown of the recapture penalties for the involved teams.

Team Benefit Penalty
Chicago Blackhawks (2017-18 through 2020-21) $17,100,000 $4,275,000

IMPORTANT NOTES [ Edited June 2, 2013 ]: Teams do not receive a credit for net negative cap benefit (where cap hit exceeds salary over the course of the contract prior to retirement). However, in calculating net "cap advantage," teams do receive a credit for seasons in which cap hit exceeds salary ... Calculations for players who have been traded during the season are rough estimates based on best information available and may differ from actual league numbers.
