I'd also add in Thornton's rookie contract, and the offer sheet Carolina made to Fedorov in 1998.

Anybody think of other deals that raised the bar?
Prospects using the college loophole to become UFAs who get bigger than usual salaries. This promotes envy amoungst other rookies.

TO offered Ohlund $2m/y as a rookie. That hurt the nucks, but I don't think it flowed through to the NHL as whole.
