Bingo, though I'm sure Ryan holds more value, being younger and cheaper



Even though some teams struggle to reach the cap floor, there are several who have no problem reaching the ceiling, and I'd be surprised if the NHL pulled the rug out from under them and reset the cap $5 million lower. If they did that, then there'd almost HAVE to be an amnesty clause. Then a whole other debate starts.

Agreed I just don't know if small - mid market teams are going to be for a amnesty clause since they won't want a team like the Rangers with 13 mill in cap space offering a guy like semin 8 million dollars for one year, only to have the cap dropped and him be amnestied in.
