1) You have concerns about those contracts, but no proof that actual cap circumvention plans (player not playing the finals years of the the contract is intended).

Why aren't you simply registering the Kovalchuk contract and investigating it until you have evidence like the others?

Ultimately their argument has to rest on something concrete to be really legitimate, no matter how "right" they are that the contract is BS.
Immediate reg flag on the fact the vet minimum in 2024 will likely not be under 600k due to inflation. I believe Kovalchuk would be signed for $585k in 2027.
