Actually I'd think the teams that signed those ludicrous contracts would just **** themselves if the league said only the first 5 or 6 years are kept. The players would make out like bandits since the biggest amounts counting signing bonuses are paidout early in the deal. The players would be UFA's again in 5 or 6 years.
