While term works to lower the impact for some players, Datsyuk signed for the same amount for every year. If anything, one correction might be to limit the avg to the first 5-7 yrs, and use that as the basis. For those cap massaging contracts, we all know that the players will receive the majority of their money in those first years, which also happen to be the years where they might stand any chance of actually earning their actual pay.
I added additional lines for Zetterberg and Franzen when only accounting for the first 7 years of their contracts. I picked 7 because that is the next longest contract on the team (both Datsyuk and Kronwall).
