Both Crosby & Mayers feed from the same finite bowl, but Crosby potentially benefits more from it than Mayers would - to the tune of a 1.4% "escrow shelter". I shudder to do the math on Parise/Suter contracts.
If that's the case (and I honestly do not think so), and Weber is paying 5% on his cap hit (7.8m) that's 392k out of his 1m salary. Is there even enough on that pay cheque to cover his taxes (has to be close to 40-50%), union fee's, and whatever other deductions come off of a players cheque, as well as an escrow hit based on his cap hit?
I've been looking for trouble... but trouble hasn't been cooperating!
