Just so we're all on the same page.

I'm talking over the course of the next calender year; the 2012-13 season.

You're right though. It's only an extra $14m, not $28m tagged onto the salary next year. That doesn't seem so bad, but it still puts a significant strangle hold on the organization's funds.
Now I agree.

Another thing that just crossed my mind: If Nashville matches they have to pay the complete salaries for the first two seasons, there is no way around. They can't trade him before July 19th 2013, but next seasons "signing bonus" will be payable July 1st. If they match, he will hit the market 2014 at best.
