The most infuriating part of this investigation is that has Zetterberg's contract with Detroit hasn't been scrutinized at all.

It's a 12 year, 73 million dollar deal. 6 mill per year essentially, well below market value considering he was coming off a 92 point season and is one of the best 2-way guys in the game.

The last year of the deal, he'll be 40 the entire year (Oct. 9 birthday).

Furthermore, the last 3 years of the deal, he makes 5,350,000 total.

So that means his cap hit over the first 9 years is 7.52 million which is much more in line with his market value and there is a possibility that he retires before his 39 and 40 seasons (when he gets paid 1 mill per year).

Has the NHL investigated this at all? Of course not.
