I don't really give a **** who gets what tbh (would side with the players though) because as a fan, the main thing that matters is the cap. I don't want the cap to go down to $55 M or some other low number. I want it to be in 65-80 so we can see better players being retained by the NHL and high end teams like before but with parity at the same time. I don't care if 5-10 teams are perpetually bad, that's the norm in most sports leagues. I don't want a team like Chicago in 09-10 getting gutted due to the cap.

It is possible to maintain the salary cap ceiling regardless of a drop in HRR%. It would just be boring to come back from this and have a lower cap, the amount of good players lost to European leagues the last time because of the $38 M cap was ridiculous and even when it went up, so many of them never returned due to those European leagues growing comfortable and NHL teams budgeting that $ towards their own young players rather than trying on European ones.
