7 years at 9.5M means that he would be 34 when it ends. Assuming you want to pay him the same money as Crosby that means 38M in next 5 years. Would you pay him that amount? What if he is shell of himself? Of course in 9 years when that question pops up it could be reasonable money.

The owners look a little ridiculous for suggesting that after the lengths they've gone to lock players up long term.
IF the cap goes down I don't see salaries and cap hits of current contracts unchanged.
