This solves the issue. It Edmonton should be able to offer a good contract to someone just now with a lower amount later on when their stars are due a substantial raise.
Back diving contracts into retirement are an issue, beyond that, they should be able to offer whatever they want to players. If they don't go to actual value and keep with the avg cap hit, then just punish the people who have players retire during the low years of their salary.
ie contracts greater than 5 yrs that go into age 39-40 should keep the entire cap hit in case of retirement, outside of injury. Contracts at 37-38 keep half the hit maybe?
