I think this needs a separate thread to get into much further and I was just throwing out some thoughts on the subject since it was mentioned. The league might like the high floor to encourage parity but how many "have not" owners will be at the table demanding more breathing room, at the same time I'm not sure the teams loaded to the gills with contracts and happy to spend to the cap are going to agree to drop the ceiling by $10 or more mil and then probably asked to drop millions more into revenue sharing.
I think at the rate revenue is climbing its far greater than they originally anticipated when they signed this deal and at some point it puts too much strain on the lower end clubs who probably aren't seeing any revenue increases (some maybe even less than in 2005)
Anyway.. do we have another thread for this already?
“I want to be able to look across the room and have them know I played as hard as I could. If I can do that throughout this season, I’m sure all the other expectations — wins, stats, whatever — will all take care of themselves.”
If they don't allow team to bury contracts in the minors, who is on the books next year, that this will affect the Leafs? Orr & Finger only? Assuming the Leafs don't plan to bury anyone else this summer.

Assuming the Leafs don't plan to bury anyone else this summer. Finger's contract expires this summer so that won't be an issue there. I really don't understand how they would ban that practice though. Would any contract with a cap-hit over say $3mil count against the cap even if the player is in the AHL?
All UFA years count against the cap might work.
