I say just grandfather in all existing contracts and have them governed by the previous CBA, with provisions for mandatory restructuring if the contract changes hands by way of player trade or waiver pickup.

Pay the full salary, just count it towards the cap as if it had been reduced to be in-line with whatever percentage the new CBA has.

So in other words, a contract worth 5 Million this year should pay out 5 million to the player (pro-rated to however many games there are once/if the season actually starts), but counts towards the cap at the new rate. So the old rate was a 57% player share, correct? And the new one looks like its going to be 50%, so count 50/57 of the contract value toward the cap, but pay 57/57 of the value to the player.
