Some teams might not like the floor but I can't see the NHLPA wanting to get rid of it. If you're going to put a drag on the upper end of salaries with a cap, they want to make sure teams have to pay a minimum amount in salary as well.

Not to mention, the floor is there to maintain at least some sense of competitive balance. Otherwise you could, in theory, have a gap of $20-30 mil or more in between payrolls of two teams and that doesn't look good for the league.
