The cap was put in for a reason and the majority of the teams play by the rules. It's the teams like Vancouver that introduced the loophole and screwed it for everyone else, so as a result Bettman wants to put in rules to stop teams from using this loophole.
Don't blame Vancouver.... The Luongo contract came pretty late in the timeline of these types of contract...

The man to give all the credit to: Darryl Sutter.
