That's a cap hit of $7.5.
How did I calculate this? Brad is 3 years younger and Parise is a better player. Brad got $57 over 6 years plus another three years for the cap. That's $9.5 annually plus those 3 years.
You have to figure Parise gets a contract to the age of 40 like all superstar do.
At 9 years times $9.5, we are talking about $85.5. Add another three years at $1, and it's now $88.5.
I added an extra $1.5 over all these years because I expect more teams to bid on Parise than Brad. Star left wings are very rare, more than centers or right wings.
At a minimum, he will get $84, which would be $7 a year, not $6.5. But I fully expect something closer to $90 than $84. Maybe $88-$89.
You are ignoring the fact that the new CBA (after this season) will ban these types of contracts. The length of the deals probably won't be able to eclipse 5-7 years and there will be a system to end lowering of the cap at the end of the deal (with low salary amounts).
