I am pro-players as usual in this, but if the players are so concerned with star players eating up 20% of the cap on max deals, then they should offer to have the max cap lowered. Claude Giroux making $12M on a $64M cap in 2 years (just putting that out there for easy math) is going to royally screw us. Teams shouldn't be penalized for having good players.
I guess they want to further increase parity. If your team doesn't have one extremely good player, they'll at least be able to sign 2-3 pretty good players instead.
