What is your concern with long-term deals? I get that the 35+ rule needs to be tweaked, perhaps, and cap circumventing deals need to be looked at, but I don't see term itself as a problem.
Ah yeah forgot it doesn't kick in straight away

Just think that long deals that are clearly for longer than the team expects the player to play is cheating. You know like we did with Pronger I mean he has a cap hit of $5m when they apparently think he'd be worth $800k (of whatever the actual amount he's supposed to get paid) in the last 2 years of the deal. I just think it's bending the rules too much.

If the Devils lose both Brodeur and Parise I will be a happy camper.

Well I think that's all we needed. We got Leighton, anything else Homer does today will be sweet surprise.

Not for $900. I'm sure glad we grabbed him right away. You'd sure hate to let the other teams have a shot at him. After all there are only 10 or so better tenders out there.

Wait for what? If they wanted Leighton as a backup what are they supposed to wait for?
