I disagree, I think those contracts were about helping the team, not helping the player. The same benefit the Flyers were looking for in cap savings applies to the Preds budget.

I don't believe the NHL or the teams have a huge problem with those deals. Gary is pissed that teams found a loophole and he wants to protect teams from making really long-term mistakes.
