It should be worth noting a cap reduction would most likely be associated with a proportional rollback. They wont just lower the cap with everyone making the same money

Puck Daddy seems to imply that the NHL's proposal doesn't include a rollback... which, of course, is insane.

Having said that, I hate the idea of "amnesty" for throwing out a dumb contract.

Yea I wrote that last night before the details of bettmans offer came out. Makes you wonder what Bettmans negotiating for. Whether he really is aiming for a deal that would put half the league out of compliance or if its a negotiating point

I think any player would take amnesty over an option where extra salary gets dumped into escrow or something.

I guess I'll be following a local team this season since the millionaires and billionaires don't know how to be adults.
