There's nothing specific, but there is language regarding attempts to circumvent the cap, which is why the devils got nailed on the Kovy contract.

If we were to do that, I would have to think that the league would investigate and possibly even bring in an arbitrator to determine if we circumvented the cap. If he was making under 1 mil, maybe they wouldn't rule against us, but if he's making 3+ mil, yeah, they'd nail us.
