So basically, the players like back-diving deals. Crosby gets paid, but the cap hit is reduced so that guys like Mayers can also get paid. My question is this...doesn't uncapped escrow ensure that guys like Mayers and Crosby feed from the same finite bowl regardless as to what their cap hits are?
Nevertheless, he feels there is a deal to be made soon.
So Jamal Mayers think that if only Malkin and Crosby were to sign 8 year deals, their cap hit would be much smaller and all the middle class get to make money?
The only way stars can free up money for the middle class is if their cap hit is much smaller than their salary. This CBA will fix that no matter what the players think.
