GMs and owners are fully aware of the unique situation taking place this summer. I'm glad the league is leaving it up to the teams to protect themselves. You could see some of the teams spending to the cap this season take it easy in free agency knowing they can't exceed the cap.
Plus, I think the floor rules could change to where the floor isn't a fixed number below the cap. This might eliminate some of the money dump trades made to get to the floor also taking away a good option for top teams to dump payroll.
In addition, I know some rules are being talked about to eliminate the AHL dump loop hole: Redden, Huet, etc.
