Simple math.... keep up.
I can understand the PA not wanting that, there is no flexing under the NHL cap as it is in the NBA.

In reality 1) the owners get away from contracts signed 3 month ago or 2) you get a cap that basically is flat for 5-6 years (if the pa starts with 57 and end up with 43). The later will have many victims. Especially players who don't have long term deals. Teams would need alot of flexibility, and I very much doubt anyone would even risk 500k for 2 years on a depth player that isn't slotted to start.
