If the owners and players want to maintain 30 franchises and all of the jobs they provide they are going to have to make some hard decisions on re-location of a 1-3 teams, increased revenue sharing, and lower costs for the owners (reducing players' share of HRR).
If NHL wants to keep 30 teams they will have to get rid of the cap floor. What's the point signing over-the-hill, overpaid players to reach the cap floor figures ?
On the othert hand, keep the cap ceiling at 70 million for the next 10 years. If richer concessions want to spend that much, So be it !
