As to the insurance, my understanding is that teams can only insure the first 5 years of a deal. For deals longer than 5 years, the first 5 is insured, and the rest of the deal places the risk on the owners dime.
well if crosby can't get a team to pay him over 400,000 a month in europe he should be beging the union to settle this thing right away.
