The last one isn't the NHL's choice its the CHL's and you can assign 20 yo's to the AHL.

To me, if I'm in the room I try to get the percentage to around ~53%, but the keep the cap the same as it is this year, and the cap stays flat until the 53% number is hit then it continues rising like it was before. That way no "current" player is gonna have to give back any money and no teams are effected by a cap jumping one way or another, thus killing all planning they had.
I don't think Ziggy's 1st example is necessarily bad for the players. It doesn't change the size of the pie - just how it's cut up. If the owners say they don't want to spend huge amounts on young guys who've barely had a chance to prove themselves, when they'd rather spend it on proven vets - but they don't want to just lose a guy they've developed, the players might agree with that. It might be a case of veterans vs. young players. Who gets that slice of the pie - and who deserves it?
