I have to imagine this is a growing concern for teams across the league as these massive contracts come closer to the end. I somewhat understand how the Cap Recapture stipulation came into place, Owners and the NHL didn’t like paying out these expensive, long, front-loaded contracts when these players weren’t producing at the same level. The NHLPA looked to protect their players. As long as the members of the association are protected, they aren’t overly concerned with penalties that could occur to the franchise. I do doubt that the NHL Head Offices or the NHLPA has an issue with these penalties.
