In this context, I think Suter is slightly underpaid, although he is slightly underpaid now, not sure about 12 years from now ....

Well that's not how Holland used to set the team cap, e.g., the Lidstrom Rule. It wasn't based on the percentages we're seeing here.

Now, if we are to use your method for a player's share of the cap maximum, why didn't Holland go higher? He wanted Suter here for Kronwall money?
