To be honest, I donít even remember since itís been so long that I wrote this up. I know one of the reasons was to grandfather in some of the larger contracts and decrease their cap hits until those contracts run out. As far as I remember it was just another way to keep salaries down and help teams keep their teams in tact (unlike the NFL). But, I do see what you mean about it being pointless and there does need to be some responsibility on the team and the GM.
