It is anti-competitive simply because a salary cap prevents/throttles a player from realizing his real market value.

It is why players have decertified their union when lockouts occur, to enable the filing of anti-trust suits.

Nashville isn't violating the rules of the CBA (Cap ceiling & floor) and if they did you can be assured the NHLPA would be on it in a NY minute.
