Their cap, right now, even with Jagr, has $20 million dollars of space. The year after? $42 million dollars.

So sure, if the Stars somehow spend 37 million dollars in a season, they could be looking at trouble with this contract. But I think they'll be okay.
Unspent cap isn't necessarily wasteful. Owners are trying to turn in a profit and if their money goes into dinosaur players who can't wing it anymore - now, that's a waste. Which is why giving a two-year deal for a 40 y/o is risky.
