NHL has no case against Pronger signing

The NHL is trying to play the role of cap police, but, from this perspective, it has no grounds in investigating Chris Pronger's contract.
The Flyers signed Pronger to a seven-year deal for $39 million plus. The league is inferring that because Pronger may retire before the deal expires, that the club circumvented the cap.
Isn't that what a shrew GM is supposed to do?
And besides, how can the NHL predict when Pronger will retire? He very well could play all seven years and retire at 42.
Don't the NHL bigwigs have better things to do with their time?
