The Hossa contract was bad, no doubt. But the Devils one reached a new level of absurdity. 7 years of cap cutting on a 17 year deal? They forced the NHL to make a move.
Sorry, Fitzy, but I don't see how that example applies here. Hossa is 32 years old. Just a hunch, but I have a feeling that when he's 42 years old, he's not going to be playing in the NHL. I don't think that the Canucks really expect Roberto Luongo to be eating up 5 million of their cap space in 2021-22.

These are the regulations that the league set up. If they don't like how teams are operating within them, then they should by all means work to change them. But don't punish teams for not breaking any rules, especially when you aren't going to punish other teams for doing the same thing.
