Based off of current rules there is little to no risk. Until we get a new CBA we can only guess what might happen.
You thought all insurace companies would insure every NHL contract despite the length, and cost? You also realize that the contracts that can be insured there is a premium paid by the NHL teams, that is above and beyond the cost of the actual cap hit dont you? You still believe there will be a clause that allows NHL teams to demote players to hide the cap hit, after everything that has been said and discussed?
