But do it in a way to save money on the cap.

Why do this?:
2013 ---------> 2,000,000$ (end of the season he is 24)
2013-2014 ---> 3,750,000$ (end of the season he is 25)
Cap hit of $2,875,000
2014-2015 ---> 7,000,000$ + (end of the season he is 26)
2015-2016 ---> 7,000,000$ + (end of the season he is 27)
2016-2017 ---> 7,000,000$ + (end of the season he is 28)
2018-2019 ---> 7,000,000$ + (end of the season he is 29)
2019-2020 ---> 7,000,000$ + (end of the season he is 30)
2020-2021 ---> 7,000,000$ + (end of the season he is 31)
2021-2022 ---> 7,000,000$ + (end of the season he is 32)
2022-2023 ---> 7,000,000$ + (end of the season he is 33)
Cap hit of 7,000,000$ +

So with this, he will have a cap hit of 7,000,000$ + for most of his prime. 61.75 Million total by 33 years old.

When we could of done/do this:

Now let's take a look at my scenario
2013 ---------> 4,000,000$ (end of the season he is 24)
2013-2014 ---> 4,500,000$ (end of the season he is 25)
2014-2015 ---> 5,000,000$ (end of the season he is 26)
2015-2016 ---> 6,500,000$ (end of the season he is 27)
2016-2017 ---> 7,000,000$ (end of the season he is 28)
2018-2019 ---> 7,500,000$ (end of the season he is 29)
Cap hit of 5,750,000

To stay in compliance with the 35% year to year rule + the 50% of lowest to highest, this is the deal I would offer
2019-2020 ---> 7,000,000$ (end of the season he is 30)
2020-2021 ---> 7,000,000$ (end of the season he is 31)
2021-2022 ---> 5,600,000$ (end of the season he is 32)
2022-2023 ---> 5,600,000$ (end of the season he is 33)
2023-2024 ---> 5,600,000$ (end of the season he is 34)
2024-2025 ---> 3,700,000$ (end of the season he is 35)
2025-2026 ---> 3,700,000$ (end of the season he is 36)
Cap hit of 5,457,000

72.7 Million total by the time he turns 36.

11 million dollars more, and 3 more years of service.

Habs benefit from having a norris trophy caliber D, making the money he deserves, 5 years of 6.5 million of more but the habs benefit from under 6 million cap hit.

Paid what he deserves, habs save on cap hit, more space for other high caliber players.

Come on people, get a clue!
