Like I said, I realize salaries will be lower, I was just giving an example in today's terms.
And I think you see my point. Iginla would have to take a huge paycut, or go somewhere else. If he left, it would hurt the Flames, but isn't the point of a cap to help teams like the Flames? So what if the Flames traded a bunch of other players to open up cap room? Then Calgary is back where they started, with a bunch of minor leaguers and one superstar, and no chance to compete.
