Front loaded contracts with huge signing bonuses.

Getzlaf deal is as legal as it gets. His cap hit is exactly the amount of years he will play.

It's not like Kovalchuk's contract where he makes 11M right now and then 1M 10 years from now to bring the cap to 6.6M.
The point being, Getzlaf isn't an 8-million dollar player. It just drives up the cost for like players even more. I'm not saying its illegal, I'm staying its irresponsible.
