If the CBA that just expired had had 8 yr maximum terms and 10% max. salary variance between contract years, I doubt we would currently be in a lockout.

It was just too opened ended, and GMs stretched it as far as they could to the overall detriment of the league.

Add these 2 points to CBA, and the rest of the details will just fall into place.
