I was going to post this in the main form but found this and maybe you guys know more about it than me..

Prongers contract...was it a part of the "35 +" rule

"The CBA also contains a 35-and-over rule, sometimes referred to as the Mogilny rule.[7] This rule states that if a player signs a multi-year deal when the player is 35 or older, starting in the second year of the contract, that amount will count towards the team's salary cap regardless of whether the player is on the active roster or not. This is designed to keep teams from signing older players to lucrative front-loaded contracts, thus saving cap room, in which there is no expectation the player will actually play in the latter years"

Would the Flyers be on the hook for him even if he retired? If the left him on the Roster as LTIR for the several years (IF he can't come back) would it be cap circumvention?

I know he wasn't front loaded or anything....but could this mess them up
