Those type of deals likely will be gone under the next CBA, when the window to extend Geno and Tanger opens.
The only player I see Shero doing that is Crosby. Now if he did that with Staal, I sure hope it's for a hell of a lot less than a 5.5 M cap hit, then I want something around 4. Otherwise there is no point in giving him such a long contract.
