MAYBE someone will do this 4 year deal, but probably not the Sharks:

$7.5, 4, 4, 2

I could be wrong, but I think that is okay under the CBA (who knows about a new CBA).

That would be 4 years, $17.5M, cap hit of $4.375M, but front loaded with a nice year one salary. Not only would the Sharks not do it because of the front-load, but also if Doan retires after year 3 so as not to play in year 4 for the $2M salary, in year 4 Sharks still have the $4.375M cap hit due to the contract being a 35+ contract, another reason they wouldn't do it. But I think there are other teams in the league who would.
