Speacial note...

The Devils will be paying Patrik Elias 7.5 million USD this coming season, however, he will only be counted as $6 million under the cap... The CBA states that regardless of the dispersion of the money, the cap charge will be equal every year of the contract. The purpose is to ensure teams aren't cheating by adding less dollars under the cap in some seasons at the expense of future seasons. An example would be if the Devils signed Elias to the same deal but backloaded it, pay him $1 million this year and short of 7 million for the other six seasons, they would have an unfair advantage because they would have an additional $5 million in cap room this year... The purpose of this part of the CBA is defined perfectly in this case and, to me, explains why all these lawyers make so much money coming up with these ideas!!!
