Gonchar's would be a tapered contract. He'd still get 5 million salary in 2010-2011. I'm only writing cap hits. I have Gonchar predicted as:

Year 1= 5 million (35 yrs old)
Year 2 = 4 million (36)
Year 3 = 4 million (37)
Year 4 = 3 million (38)
Year 5 = 1.5 million (39)
Year 6 = 1 million (40)

Cap hit of 3.08 million. And while you're correct that I don't know how player contracts work, I believe as players near 40 their salaries decrease. Perhaps I have decreased Gonchar's too much, but I believe he will have a lower cap hit than 5 million on his next contract. Bet on it.
