    If Suter and parise are bought out in those "bogus" years:
    *2022-23: $5,982,906
    ◦ 2023-24: $6,982,906
    ◦ 2024-25: $6,982,906
    ◦ 2025-26: $444,444
    ◦ 2026-27: $444,444
    ◦ 2027-28: $444,444
    Total Cap= $21,282,050

    If they were to play them out:
    *2022-23: $7,538,462
    ◦ 2023-24: $7,538,462
    ◦ 2024-25: $7,538,462
    Total Cap= $22,615,386

    It's not much of a savings but it's still about $1.5M. And if i read it (and understood it right) Minny would only have to pay them $444,444 for six years (which is a total of $2,666,664M) when they are owed a total of $4M for those remaining years. So if they go that route Parise and Suter will retire with $94M in "bankable" money already and only leave $1,333,336 when retiring 3 years before the contract ends.

    We haven't really seen this used (because most of these types of contracts end in 2020+) but i can see why teams use this to lock up good players, on the flip side i can see why Burke thinks it's cheating. I would continue to stay away from these deals but if the new CBA doesn't punish these teams and allows it to go on i hope burke changes his stance because then we will have less of a chance of keeping high-level talent or aquiring it for that matter.
