Yeah and then you'll have a few years of decent contracts until you're so top heavy you can't sign anyone of note. I won't give you projections on your own players I'll just give Anaheim as an example. I'll give how much each player makes now and how much they could make on their new contracts

Getzlaf 5.5/6-7
Perry 5.5/6-7
Ryan 5.5
Hiller 4.5/5
Beachemin 3.4
Fowler 1/3,5-4
And ducks fans want to add Suter or Parise at 7.5. That would be at best about 30 million locked up in 7 players.

You gotta consider that stockpiling star talent will have cap implications.
