The problem is, the sliding scale contracts that teams are using with free agents give the team more cap flexibility. But these contracts are paying players small amounts in out years when that player may be retired, and these years are expected to be bought out. These contracts make sense for a 30 year old player, but not for a 26 or 27 year old player. I'm not sure why Waddell and the Thrashers thought they could do such a deal with Kovy.
