Under the former CBA, some GM's signed players to long term, front loaded contracts that circumvented the cap. If the player retires, the team that signed that contract is now on the hook for a percentage of that contract. I don't believe that any contracts signed under the current CBA could result in a RCP in a player retires early. For examples, see Roberto Luongo and Ilya Kovalchuk.
