Instead of going 15% rollback on all contracts, period...
go 15% rollback in yr 1 and 10% in yr 2... zero % in yrs 3 and beyond.

Considering teams are minimally commited to salary 3 yrs from now, they could easily plan ahead and structure their caps around all existing contracts.
ex. Wild have 30.1 mil in cap spent on 7 players in 3 yrs... lots of room to fill appropriately.

(or whatever % percentage grade they come up with they think will work and allow for players to retain as much of their present contract value as possible while still lending flexibility for GM's to do their thing.)
Did the bargaining committees read this thread?

I think so...

keep em coming...

I like the fact one of the sides finally proposed a ramp down to their %...
I think that will be the most likely solution..

I proposed an unlikely 10 yr proposal... ... but same ramp down concept where the players' contracts would be minimally effected.
