Only if the players retire. And that isnt the way it usually works that players are looking forward for the first possible opportunity to retire and they have to be dragged back to the ice by GM's and teams to finish their contracts.
I think you have totally misinterpreted the way these contracts work. Players are getting 14 million in there first year and 1 million when they are 42. Of course they will retire before their contract is over. They will have been paid the vast majority of their contract and it will be way over their cap hit.
