It might be a guess, but it's pretty damn educated.

Also, the 2010-2011 cap won't be based on season tickets sold in 14 months from now.
I think all the GM's have a very good idea of what the cap will be for this coming year but the following year is still specualtive.

My problem is that if you assume the worst as Solomon apparently did, it affects our ability to sign a superstar, or significant scoring left winger, so that while other teams may have problems greater than ours, it wont necessarily benefit us as we have been led to believe.
