Hell, Alex Burrows just got a deal that pays him $4.5 million per year for his 34 and 35 year old seasons and somehow the Sedins are supposed to take less for the same years?
Any comparable numbers from contracts just signed for this CBA? Cap goes down to $64.3 million next season. Has to be a negative impact on future contracts. Question is, how much an impact. Ovechkin's contract didn't look as bad on a seemingly continually increasing cap; but $9.5 million looks ugly on a $64.3 million cap.
