I think the cap is going to be reduced in the new CBA. The NHL owners look at the reduction in the percentage of revenues that were given to NBA players and NFL players in their current CBAs (around 50%) and the NHL owners want the same thing.

I believe the NHL CBA currently has approximately 57% of revenues going to player salaries. There are also a lot of small market teams that want the loophole of dumping unwanted player contracts to the minors eliminated.

We'll see, but I think negotiations are going to get pretty heated before it's all over.
