ok, lets say magically the players agree to a cap of whatever the owners demand. just say.
ok, just say. you dont think the RFA compensation rule will be lowered ? I mean, the players wont want to negotiate that in return for the cap ? You bet they will demand consessions in RFA compensation (to not restrict movement as much as it is today) and lower UFA.
so, just like in the NBA, players leave their teams at real young ages for ZERO compemsation.
like i said many times, be careful what you wish for.
