The part in bold is spot on.
The way the math works, the floor grows faster than the cap. Correct that calculation, and the teams that are losing money become solvent. Rather than being a fixed dollar amount less than the cap, it should change/increase by the same percentage.
The fact that this has not been a part of any of the owners' proposals tells me that their supposed concern for the small market teams is a sham, and that the real goal of the 'hard line' owners in this lockout (and the next one, and the next one after that..) is to guarantee further increases in profits for large market teams.
