Its that sort of back diving stuff (retire at low salary, but higher cap hit contract) and go play in Europe type of stuff I want to see how it all sorted out. Thanks for your replies.

Agreed that the contract limits will control this a bit, but we can now expect more of these type of contracts for lower tier players...
