I don't think the cap will go down without rollbacks. The owners are all on the same page, and I can't see teams that spends to the cap, agree to getting forced into moving players in a scenario that gives them a short, hard deadline to get it done.
Especially with all the last-minute signings, its clear that contracts are currently adjusted to a 70mil cap. I don't see any way that the rich teams would be on board with giving their players away to poor teams, and then give them the money to pay them too. The league wants a 20mil cap reduction. Even 10 mil would be impossible to swallow.
Cap will go down, but Luongo's contract will be reduced with it.
