In 2007 the Cap was 44 million. A 2.5 million dollar Dman was aprox 6.4% of your cap.
In 2012/2013 with a projected 70 million cap...the same Dman is worth 4.5 million keeping things proportional.
People need to wrap their heads around the fact that with an increasing cap..your going to have increased salaries.
You cant look at a guy like Garrison making 4.5 - 5 million and compare him to a UFA who signed 3 years ago and say "woah..see compare these guys..Garrison isn't worth 5". Things change with time.
Garrison is completely worth 4.5-5 million dollars on a deal that takes him to 31 or 32 years old. GM's know this..that's why they're GM's and you sir are not.
as added bya previous poster in this thread... if less teams are spending to the cap then before..then maybe you have to adjust the percentage down ..but i'm not sure if thats true or not..but you get my point
