make a combination hard/soft cap. For a player a team drafts, a team is allowed to go over the cap and pay a luxury tax.

For UFAs, cap figure is based on prior salary of all pending RFAs + 10%. Teams signing UFAs cannot exceed the hard cap based on those salaries.

For example, the Rangers would have to include Staal, Girardi, etc's prior year cap hit plus 10% in their cap when signing UFA.

Of course this would still put a team at an advantage when players are on entry level contracts. So IDK, there'd have to be a system to prevent teams from signing massive UFA contracts, then resigning all of their own RFAs to huge contracts afterward.
