So if you're a team with an internal budget that cannot spend to the cap max anyways (there are always 10+) then that artificial cap hit is meaningless - It only matters to teams who would have spent that extra cap hit penalty on another player.
Wrong. His contract is in the "Frontloaded" years. His salary is higher than his cap hit for the next 6 seasons. That's not good for small market teams watching their budgets either.
Face it, that contract will scare away everyone but 1 or 2 teams.
