If the cap goes higher, then it's the bottom teams that suffer because they have to keep spending on average players to meet the salary floor (and lose money as a result).
While I agree, we'd hardly be alone in agony if that happened. Players are starting to get crazy deals. Hemsky at 5 million? Ruutu at 4.5? I think everyone is expecting it to go up.

I agree we can't count on it, but if the salaries of players stay on this pace and the cap doesn't go up, things are gonna get ugly fast. Don't count on it, but it is a good possibility.
