I disagree. More than 50% of the players have more to lose or have already lost a significant amount of money / playing time. The hard cap effects the Ziggy Palffy's and Bill Guerins of the league, where as it effects the Sean Avery's, Jeff Cowan's, Derek Armstrongs etc more by not playing. Add in the facts that older players(yzermans, luc's, etc) want there last run and I think you will see the players voting it in and getting back on the ice.
