I would guess that management would hate the idea far more than the players would. The AAV allows teams to fill a roster of young, inexpensive players and high priced veteran players, and squeeze every cent they can under the cap.

Also, Holmgren has problems handling the cap with AAV, can you imagine if every player's cap hit changed every year? He'd be completely lost.
