Maybe that is the answer. There should be no salary cap on team spending, but there should be a cap on the on-ice team.

This way a team can spend as much as it likes on players. It can spend $11m on Jagr as a reserve if it wants. It might cut the legs out from under the NHLPA because the on ice-limit would be a team-NHL competition rule with nothing to do with the NHLPA or CBA. There are after all many NHL implemented rules which affect the teams and are not in the CBA.
