Even with the higher cap this season, you have to have an amnesty buyout period if you are changing the system in a way that players that have been put in the ahl are now going to count aginst the cap (ie redden). I wonder how the oilers would be if they still had souray in the ahl? There has to be a better transition than just one season at what the cap would have been. Also there must be something else to transition because the bruins are in worse cap situations than the rangers and nothing has come out about Jacobs.
Also, I miss the age of dynasties! I want that back, and I'm sure there are a lot that feel that way.
That hasn't been proposed. The players will just be paying a higher escrow rate.
And dynasties suck. It's fun to think about the great teams of the past, but it gets boring when the same teams win all the time.
