So this guy is under contract for 5 years. At 3% growth, the 50/50 cap split in Year 3 is $1.7B. Meanwhile, at this time only $900M of contracts are still committed, including this hypothetical player. He will get paid first, including deferments under Make Whole from the first two years. So his pay should go down in years 1 and 2 and then go up in years 3-5 when he gets his deferred payment.

It's all the other guys who are not under contract who will suffer - the money paid to this guy will be now unavailable to UFA's. Under 3% growth the player share doesn't get back to $1.8B until year 5 so it will be suffering for UFA's for a long time.

Again, here is Kopitar's situation with REAL numbers:

Kopitar (face value, old CBA): $6.8M + $6.8M + $6.8M + $6.8M = $27.2M

Kopitar (NHL 50/50): $5.9M + $6.2M + $7.5M + $7.5M = $27.2M

Under no circumstances will Make Whole reduce the total of the face value of the contracts. ALL it does is put off paying the money owed.

This poster should not be taken seriously under any circumstances.
