Why does it matter? This was a concession to the players by the owners to keep teams from creating ultra-low team salary caps and screwing players out of $$. Who cares if Engo gets a sweet deal, there is always another player somewhere taking a haircut in salary to play for a contender (ie: Richards and Ehrhoff). It all balances out. I think the system is great!
It is the Orpik and Pouliot deals that have me scratching my head.
