If Johan Franzen retires or defects in the 2013 off-season (age 33 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.
Cap benefit the team received (total salary payment less total cap hit) while the player was on the team prior to retirement. Teams do not receive a credit for seasons with negative cap benefit (where cap hit exceeds salary).
Cap penalty charged to the team each season following retirement until the end year of the contract. Penalties do not apply to teams which traded a player prior to the new CBA agreement in 2012.

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.
