Thats easily the worst stipulation in the new contract from the NHL that will directly affect the owner and not the player, there will be safe guards in the new length of contract so that these things don't happen unless for example we signed Doan to a 5 year contract and he retired 2 years in.
and then no one near the cap would ever sign doan. there is no way the "rich" teams will allow themselves to be punished on existing contracts. the battle is between the owners and the players right now ... even though I have said repeatedly there is a battle between the owners in the background ... the rich owners are not going to get screwed by betman ... he's the puppet answering to the rich few.
