The Devils have 26m in cap space to sign 7 players next year.

Also the contract starts of with a Salary of $4m and ends with 5.75m.

These contracts I have no problem with, no cap circumvention and they easily have the space for it.

I don't think M&O has a problem with it being a cap circumventing contract but rather thinks it's a bad signing. I don't know enough about Zajac to say. A cap hit of $5.75M does seem to be quite on the high end and unaffected by what I'd consider should be a movement to reduce contracts after this new CBA. The Devils do have the cap space, as you said though. But that can get eaten up in a hurry. 8 years at that cap hit too.. yikes. I hope for their sake they are right about him.
