The OC Register Blog has coverage with a great look at the CAP issues

Bryzgalov’s salary-cap hit the remainder of the season is $900,000, compared to a $650,000 hit for goalie Jonas Hiller, whom the club recalled from American League affiliate Portland, Maine, to fill Bryzgalov’s spot on the roster. Thus, the cap savings amounts to only $250,000.

Of course, the Ducks would have been paying Hiller either way, because he is on a one-way contract, and now will get out of the actual $1,050,000 remaining on Bryzgalov’s contract, so there is actual financial savings that will help the club stay closer to the desired payroll budget, which is in the $42 million to $44 million range – whether Niedermayer returns or not.
