As I've stated before, the league "should" flex on their demands on the contracting rights. They should have enough if they can tweak the variance clause to address their cap circumventing concerns.
That I agree with. The variance clause essentially eliminates cap circumvention that they needn't seek anything else regarding contracts. The amount of "make whole" is still up for debate though, and supposedly there is speculation the players want compensation for the lockout. I just cannot see any scenario where the league bends on that last one.
