Could this tidbit of news be a shot at the NHLPA in advance of negotiations? A higher cap means higher salaries for the players, and they'd be pretty ticked if the new CBA scuttled this type of gain. It struck me as if the owners were saying, "We could have all this extra money to pay to you guys, but we can't because your union is creating uncertainty with the new CBA."

Notwithstanding the confounding element of player escrow amounts, is that an oversimplified conspiracy theory?
