Also, someone needs to tell Giroux he should have stopped playing at the all-star break.
Services done?

Yeah, the point is immensely idiotic. These contracts are essentially structured like signing bonuses. Players get paid more up front, and the team receives a lower cap hit on their end.

Essentially his argument is that Timonen can stop playing so hard the next couple of years because his salary will scale down to 5M and then 3M.
