You can go watch Fehr's press conference. They are proposing a rule that says the lowest year of the contract must be at least 25% of the highest year. Fehr called it the Crosby rule referencing Crosby's contract.
Crosby's contract goes from 12 Million to 3 Million (a few years in the middle around 10 million). It's a lot more than 25% variance. In fact, there's no yearly variance, the only limitation is a 75% variance limit between the highest year and lowest year.
So, again, this is a legal contract under the NHLPA proposal: 12m, 12m, 12m, 12m, 12m, 3m, 3m, 3m. $60 Million in first 5 years with an $8.6 Million cap hit.
