I really don't know how much of these contracts work, but if there is one thing I wish get's fixed in the CBA it's the double digit number of years a team can sign a player for. 14 years, 12 years, 10 years, just seem way too much. I'd say 5 should be the maximum. Granted I've heard you don't look at it based on number of years but how much cap hit is done, yet I see these long term deals and I think a person is going to be past his prime at the end of the deal. Heck, the best example on why I hate all these long term deals is the whole Rick Dipietro contract that the Islanders are still paying. It just seems ridiculous that the NHL allows all this.
