Would it be too hard to keep Godard and Pardy in the AHL? Or at least Godard? I don't totally know how a one-way contract works, but wouldn't we just be paying him more?
Where are you hearing it hasn't been discussed? It's the most popular theory I've seen since nearly everyone expects the players to take a smaller portion of the revenues (less than the current 57%) meaning the cap will go down. Most people don't expect a salary rollback because they expect teams will be given an amnesty buyout instead.

If the owners push for a salary rollback, I don't expect the CBA to be done by September 15th.
