About the variance in the NHLPA offer, if I understood correctly it was only in year 7-8 the salary could be 25% of the highest annual salary. Not that it matters much since it's usually the latter years that are used to push cap hit down.
I don't really know where NHLPA stands on cap hit disappearing if a player retires so it's possible that if a team were to try to get salary to exceed cap hit through this mechanism they'd be kicking a can in front of them and had to pay the price later.
