Absolutely not true..
CBA dictates how past contracts are treated. The cap savings recapture system, for instance, is one way how this CBA is treating past contracts differently.
Parise/Suter would incur penalty cap hits of around $6.2 million each for 3 years if they retire before their garbage years set in. Kovy would be something around $3.5 for two. Weber around $6.9 million for 3.
