Regarding the 10+ year contracts continuing, I am not sure they will be as popular if this new rule takes effect. The whole idea behind them was to take advantage of the cap circumvention. Now, they have to be legit 10-15 year deals, and the only players that you can realistically sign to those types of contracts will be the 20-25 year olds.
Not exactly Wendel, i can already see a HUGE loophole is this system.

The rich team trades the aged player to a poor team when the contract is close to winding down.

The poor team gets a boost of 6 million toward reaching the cap floor without paying a dime in salary.

Can't see anyway to restrict the trading of said player if they do it before any retirement announcement.

Also can't see how they could structure any penalty either direction if it is done before a retirement call.
