I disagree. If the rules state that you can sign Hossa or Kovalchuk or Weber til the end of their career and get a lower cap hit, and your OWNER is willing to spend money to win, then thats what you do.

as a player, you want to ensure the most money, so you demand a retirement contract. This only applies to elite players that can make a real difference. You cant blame an owner for trying to win...

and im not blaming these players for demanding these contracts, im blaming a bad rule in the old CBA that needs to be fixed, which is exactly what Bettman said.
