We need to start front loading contracts!

I hope that Gauthier will start to sign front loaded contracts in the future, because I think it's a very good weapon in the cap-world we live in.

If Hamrlik's contract was front loaded and he would be making ex. $2M next year, he would be easy to move to a team who isn't up against the cap. The poor teams doesn't care about the cap, they only care about the salary.

Next year (or this year?), we might want to deal with Spacek, that would also be way easier if it was front loaded.

The same might be for Gionta if he starts to decline in a few years.

Why didn't Gainey front load contracts? Because of the owners?
