08:21 AM ET 10.18 | The NHL's proposed system offers a nuance that may significantly hurt in Philadelphia. [If Jeff Carter] decides at the age of 35 in 2020-21 that he doesn't feel like playing for a measly $2 million, he can retire and his $5.3-million cap hit will go back to the Flyers for the last two years. If [Mike Richards] decides at the age of 33 in 2018-19 that he doesn't fancy pulling in only $3 million, he can hang up his skates and the Flyers will be on the hook for $5.75 million the next two seasons. ... And what does all this mean to the possible trade of Roberto Luongo? Will Canucks GM Mike Gillis be as willing to trade him knowing the Canucks will be stuck with a $5.3 -million cap hit for three years if Luongo retires in 2019.

What's most disturbing to me about this item is the use of the term "playing for a MEASLY $2 million" and "pulling in ONLY $3 million"... I wish I could do my job -- not play a game -- for a "measly" $80K....
