Not sure I would call the contracts signed in the summer smaller cap hits. The real bargains with the long term deals are guys like Zetterberg and Hossa where the actual cap hit is way below market value, not Parise and Suter who both have a market value salary and cap hit. I'd rather take Perry's new contract on the books over Parise's.
