I was unaware the new CBA has been ratified.

Also, if the cap goes the other way, the cap-hit is all the better as it's more efficient.
Give me one instance of the cap 'going the other way.'

If it's unattractive to teams, why is the NHL trying to close the loophole _and_ punish existing BDCs?
A much more legitimate approach would be to question why so few teams have expressed interest in acquiring Luongo.

But to answer the question at hand, the league is interested in ending this charade because it is unsustainable to the health of the fiscal position of teams and league overall.


The cap is virtually irrelevant; it holds no legitimacy. The fact that fans seem to place such a disproportionate value on cap-hits (to the point of detriment or propping of the actual abilities of players) is both unfortunate and frustrating at the same time.
