    Tell me, if the players agree to a cap, what is stopping PHI from giving Roenick a 3m base salary and then on the pretense of nothing to do with NHL, the owner in PHI gives JR a personal services contract to mow his lawn for another 5m per season.

    how can the NHL legally stop these kinds of things ??? i mean, is it in their jurisduction to stop two parties from agreeing to a contract outside of the scope of the NHL business ?

    The NFL has rules prohibiting that sort of thing in it's CBA. Teams found to be circumventing the cap are subject to fines and loss of draft picks. The Denver Broncos were recently fined $950K and forfeited a 3rd round pick.

    and

    In other words, agreements outside of the standard player contract are prohibited. It's perfectly legal as long as it's negotiated in the CBA.
