Basically, it supports the idea that the root of any financial problem the NHL has is the disparity in revenue between teams, not the overall revenue/costs, if the league as a whole is profitable but so many teams can't manage. The league has the option of proposing revenue sharing, or simply reducing the cap floor, to solve this problem, if it's really as big a problem as they claim it is.
Or they could de-link the cap from revenues.

Offer them a cap of 30million per team, no cap floor. Maximum salary of 3mill per year/player.

Dont like it, move your wife and kids to Russia and take your chances.

Or go work at Safeway.
