There is no such thing as an NHL football player. The NHL is a HOCKEY league.
Prior to 1982, NHL players were actually slaves captured in Canada. Most were treated very poorly. As a result of daily beatings and poor nutrition, many had their teeth fall out. In 1982, Gary Bettman declared hockey slavery to be against the hockey code, and NHL players were paid. Starting salary for an NHL player in 1982 was a bag of pucks and a set of false teeth.
No. An NHL player's salary only counts against the cap if he is currently on the major league's roster.
