If you're trying to say salary cap, yes, the NHL will never again operate without a salary cap. And the vast majority of fans AGREE with a cap.

And that's a good thing.

These spreadheets already exist for every team. How could any NHL team NOT have this info?

Competent GMs work within the CBA rules so they have cushion cap money set aside for possible UFA signings. If your team doesn't do that, ... oh well, other GMs are doing that.
