35+ contract, if he retires Philly is screwed with his cap hit.
It's a little absurd how financial and sports aspects differ - if he doesn't retire, he goes on LITR, gets the money, and Philly doesn't suffer cap-wise. If he does retire, he doesn't get the money, yet Philly has to suffer the cap hit. Just weird.
Well, yeah, but while we reasonably expected to be able to get more out of Cogs, I don't think anyone expects to get as much out of him as Crosby already did... #50 is quite the return for Pittsburgh this year. That said, I think he'll be a good addition for them.
