At that point you're catering too much to the small markets though. Obviously the NHLPA would be on board, but the Board of Governors is pretty much run by the big teams, and you have to think the Rags/Flyers/Canadians will not be happy about having a salary cap AND having to shell out even more money to keep other teams competitive, which limits their potential success.

I mean, do you think Montreal and Toronto were thrilled about having to pay many millions of dollars to Florida so they could subsidize the team's shopping spree this summer and eliminate them from the playoffs?

I have to think they let that floor swing a little lower. If it's $8M from 57% of revenues, maybe it's $8M up and $12M down. Or 20% up and 30% down. Or floor is 45% and ceiling 70%. Etc
