If this is true and the nhlpa approve, what will the 16 teams who will be over the cap do? Especially the flames
Easy. Demote Stajan, Babchuk, and Smith to the AHL, bring up Carson as #7 D, and defer all salary bonuses to 2013/14. $82,000 in cap space.

But from what I understand that probably wouldn't be necessary as the salary rollbacks would take the form of escrow payments to the owners.
