So far all I've seen is Bill Daly going around saying how the cap floor is one of the good things to come out of the last lockout. Maybe when the cap was $39 million and the floor was $21 million.
Removing the cap floor won't mean a thing if the salary cap itself wasn't restricted by some means. You will still hve teams spending to the cap. All it will mean is that the have not teams won't be able to compete with the big guys again, which will render the salary cap useless.
