NFL salaries are tied to revenue, just as the NHL. Do you really think that having 30 extra roster players, all making well below avg, isn't going to skewer these numbers in the NHL's favor? There is no way the high end NFL cap allocations (which eat up the biggest portion of the cap) could ever make up the difference.

You are comparing apples to oranges.
