2013: 67.2m MP, 80.6m/53.7m, 26.8m separation
2014: 69.7m MP, 83.7m/55.8m, 27.9m separation
2019: 107.6m MP, 129.1m/86.0m, 43.0m separation

How does having 25-40m difference between the highest spenders and the lowest spenders help parity in the league? What would that do to the on-ice product of the cap floor teams? And how would that impact the revenue of those teams?

I don't think it's an easy question. They don't want teams in the red if they don't need to be, but neither do they want teams to suck which would mess with the perceived parity that we currently have.
At the end of the day, you have to just look at the % difference... and that stays constant which should keep the general quality differences between the teams constant despite the growing $ amount difference.

by percentage.. in yr 1 post lockout, a 31 mil mp had a range of 39mil to 23 mil. That was a huge difference based on %.

But nothing compared to 50-60 mil differences we were seeing pre-cap.
