So lets say everyone has the same size glass. One of your tream's best players is very thirsty, so he asks you for a drink. You have a faucet right next to you, but alas, your glass is full and you have promised the water in it to other players on your team first. Now your superstar has to go next door to Mr. I's house, who has plenty of room in his glass to give your player a drink.

your owner had a facuet with lots of water in it, and really wanted to give your player a drink, but couldn't. Would you be upset if this happened to your team?
you would have to look at the glass and see how much water you could feasably pour out or how much water would be poured out after the season (players retiring, players you don't intend on signing anyway etc)

if there was only so much water per team to be held, you'd see alot more players being offered less than they would if they had an entire lake, which is what the nhlpa would love to see, but would you rather see a glass full of water or see a drought happen, which is essentially what it's coming down to
