If the system changes,there will be a compliance buyout period. Craig Custance quoted a NHL source who said there have to be compliance/amnesty buyouts. Lowering the % changes the system. The NHL wants to make the system more restrictive. The NBA system is more restrictive. That's why the Knicks scraped their plans of CP3. They couldn't pay 3 max players under the new CBA. The NBA has a tax system and it will penalize big spenders more than in the old CBA. Kevin Lowe said the NHL wants to tighten up the CBA. Some teams don't want the rich teams to send their mistakes to Europe or to the AHL. The long term IR is another issue. The Flyers had Hatcher and Rathje on LTI for years. The NHL wants contract term limits. They want so many things. They want to raise the age of group III from 27. Some of those will help the Rangers such as contract term limits. The Rangers need to be careful. They don't know the system.
