How is that fair? How is that good business? The LA Kings (and potentially another team or two by the end of that contract) will have NO risk/worry acquiring him/trading him or worrying about his declining skill ect. because somehow these business "geniuses" and lawyers have decided that another team should have to foot the bill for it. Who knows how many of these contracts or trades would have actually happened if these penalties would have been in place to begin with. How, how HOW can the League now punish those teams after the fact?!? UNREAL!!
It is also interesting to note that Carter was traded to CBJ on Jun 23, 8 days before his new contract officially kicked in.

I don't think that this clause will stand.
