The rangers and a few others can pay these salaries, while the others cannot.
NJD offered him over 8m per season. TOR was willing to pay him 8m per season as well.

Its not like NYR was the only team to offer him that ugly contract.

Besides, it was a one time contract, and no matter what system, we wont see it again. I represents less than 1% of the entire pay the players get, its not a big deal. Less than 20 players make over 8m per season.
