It doesn't matter if it's blatant cap circumvention, there isn't a rule against it and they haven't made any concerted effort to amend the current rule. They've got no precedent other than "Because we say so."
IIRC the NHL can nix any deal if they feel that it's likely the player won't fulfill the entirety of the contract. I think it's pretty obvious that Kovalchuk wasn't going to fulfill that contract.
