JFJ can ask for $4.5M and if he gets it let him walk for the picks because we'll have Penner ;-)

"driving up the price of young" is a good thing as is "driving down the price of elder UFAs" - the cap makes sure this has to happen unless revenues go skyrocketing to some insane level.
Who's to say the UFAs even having the market drive salaries down still just won't go to the large markets for even less just for quality of life reasons?This whole redistribution stuff sounds more like pablum than an actuality.
