For example, say after this season UNB still has 22 players eligible to return after this season...would they have to cut someone to get down to 21? Or could they carry 22 until more guys graduate after the end of next season? If it is the latter maybe that is why teams are bringing in fewer players, in preparation of next season.
They're using this year to grandfather the rule, meaning next year will be a hard cap of 21 skaters. Unfortunately teams will have to cut guys if they're above.
