Sorry, that's incorrect. Signing bonuses do count as salary, it just gets paid up front. Weber will make $14M each of his first few years, $13M of that is signing bonus, so it's really only $1M in salary. Technically, it's higher than anyone will be able to get next year, but when I said "highest paid" I was referring to the cap hit.
Thanks for the input forgot about that, you are right. I think Weber is making the most, closely followed by Crosby but anyways I absolutely hate the new cap its a joke.
