The cap will likely end up in the 60 million range, to start and should continue to grow. If it grows at teh current rate each of those contracts will be be worth 7% less against the cap each year of the contract. This is unreasonable gorwth, but even if they were to shrink by 5% of the contract each year on a 6 year deal they would be the same at $4.2-4.7 million by todays dollars in the last year of the deal.
There is also the chance of a hometown discount from the big 4 so we can keep the team together.
Anyone who see's hall at $6.0m for 6 years and says thats a bad deal need only go look at the Toews, Kane, Getzlaf and perry deals to see how well those deals worked out by todays standards.
