Players have lost money to the escrow account, making the increasing cap a double edged sword for anyone with an older contract.
Don't assume the players would be entirely against fiscal restructuring just because you don't understand how it all works.
All the players with long-term deals are better off with a frozen cap as of today.
Are you holding your breath?
You're basically fearmongering for Y2K.
Good luck with 2012, but ill bet no significant CBA changes happen, and if they do they won't effect existing contracts. (Not that GMs should plan around hypotheticals you invent anyways)
Ill tell you if it's coming though, i bet I hear about it long before you
