I guess this is why the talks were so complicated over the last few weeks. I've noticed that when anything is over-complicated that the opportunity for anomalies is not a linear function, it skews more to the square law or a logrithmic function. So I guess there will be even more chances for liars to figure and figures to lie. We need a couple of lawyers on the coaching staff.

The way I read this, it doesn't matter what your payroll is at any given moment. Your payroll could be $100 mil on 10/10/05 but if you haven't actually written checks totalling $39 mil at the end of the season, you're fine.
But what if you have a guy with a bonus for awards...or winning a Cup? Does the league void a trade if the Sens are at $38.5 mil but with Hasek having a bonus that pays him $1 mil if they win the Cup? What if he has 25 wins with 30 games to go and gets paid $1 mil if he finishes the season with 45 wins?
