Of course. But it gets old to hear people say it was front loaded to bring down the cap hit and argue about it. Most of the time they each know how it's figured.When someone says the cap hit is just total dollars divided by years and it doesn't matter whether it's front loaded or not, they are right. But it's also right that teams add cheap years to lower the cap, which make it "front loaded".

I agree it would be totally misleading to compare some other star to Shea Weber and say "that guy only makes 5,5 million" if that's cap hit number but the player is actually making 7 or more but just has cheap years on the end. Weber would get the 7 or more if he was comparable, not the 5.5 And for Nashville, actual yearly salary matters the most, not those cap numbers.
