If they keep the contracts length at 5 years and IF the cap hit = the real salary figure, you will have less "cheaters" like Minnesota and the Devils. UFA should not happen before the guy is 28 or has 8 full years at NHL level.
Teams in the NHL are partners not competing hoping to eliminate each other from business.
And once again you seem to lack fundamental understanding of how the economics of the NHL operate. Eliminating the cap floor while maintaining a system of shared % of HRR with the players would be no different then revenue sharing amongst the teams. Teams that spent more would have to pony up more to offset the discrepency in salaries created by the low spending teams not spending enough.
