Don't kid yourself. WE got Bryz, Briere and others by offering them huge front loaded deals. Deals that many other teams cant offer. WE have a solid core now, but in 4 years? HOw much will this cba change the complexion of the league. I shudder to think about the offer that Giroux will get, and shudder at the thought of losing young talent because of his huge contract.

This CBA is really destined to make the salary cap era even more fair, and the smaller market teams...every single one of them will benefit greatly from it.
Top end FA will be somewhat reduced, but there will still be hartnell/timonen type trades. Those may actually rise a bit.
