So it's not like Malkin, Stamkos, Sid etc etc will get 8mil plus for 5 years only.

The ones that have the shorter careers are the ones that are making league minimum which i'm sure the owners dont have issues with.
The Minnesota Wild sign Parise and Suter to identical 13-year, $98 million US deals and then have the audacity to compalin about player salaries? Hypocrites. It is blatantly obvious that there is a rift in the NHL governors between the rich and poor NHL teams. The rich don't want to share revenue and the poor don't want contraction. The answer? Get the money the poor teams need from the players.
