Coming out of the lockout Iginla signed a 3y/7 mil contract, 18% of the 39 million cap. If he signed at that % today it would be 12.6 million. Jagr and Lidstrom were making 20% of the cap on their contracts that were signed pre-lockout too.

People forget the cap has almost doubled. It's easy to think players are over/underpaid because the old contracts are still around, so the 7 million Iginla got in 2005 isn't the same as Stamkos getting 7.5, Stamkos took a massive paycut in comparison.
