Scott Hartnell signed for six years and 4m per in 07/08. The cap was 50.3m. His portion of the cap was 4.2m / 50.3 = 0,0835. With a 71m cap that is 5,95m per.

At that point, Scott Hartnell had:

-scored 25 goals once

-a career year with 48 pts

-scored more than 40 pts two times in 6 years in the NHL

Philly gave him six years and a 0,0835 portion of their cap which is compareable to just under 6m this off-season. It was a lot when he signed the contract, sure. But the year after the cap was 56.7m. The contract only had a 0,074 portion of their cap, which is compare able not to 5.95m per but 5.2m per with a 71m cap. A 700k "diffrence". When the contract went out the porition of the cap was 0.06 which is compare to 4m this off-season.

There are all kind of contracts like this. Much more extreme examples than Hartnell who's contract in comparision is pretty modest. And like who remembers that like Marty Straka had a 0.0795 porition of our cap in 05'? That is equal to 5.6m per next season.
