There will always be loopholes until the NHL decides to define a players cap hit as the actual salary paid for that season.

As for why the NHL decided to make only 7+ year backdiving contracts eligible for the Cap Benefit Recapture, it's probably because they felt those contracts were the ones most likely negotiated in bad faith. IMO it's still a corrective tool, not a penalty.
