What's the penalty? To treat make sure all contracts are treated fairly?
Everyone knows the CBA can change how cap hits are accounted for. If salaries count in the AHL, that's a huge change for Wade Redden, but it isn't a "penalty" it's something to bring equality back.
The NHL told these teams it hates those deals, it didn't want the GMs signing them. The NHL said they would account for those type of deals in the next CBA. I don't think the GMs can be shocked that their cap manipulating contracts will be un-manipulated.
