The PA feels that it's some level of progress.
Limitation of SPC's does VERY little to the amount they get paid. Its a huge stepping stone for the league because it helps avoid situations like Philly trying to poach a star from a small market like Weber in Nashville. A 12 year contract compared to a 5 year contract with the variances that the NHL is proposing compared to the current variances, the money is the same damn amount. All it does is stop teams from adding 3-5 years of garbage money to circumvent the cap.
