I'm not denying the cap won't increase. But I am skeptical of the opinions that it will decrease from 64.3 to 60. Jeremy Jacobs, one of the main hawks behind all this lockout stuff, would be screwing himself. I am not ready to get into the trading gaborik talk when nothing has happened yet. There's no hockey and we are starting, imo, blind trade conversations just like we do when there actually is hockey. Until I read a rumor from a legitimate source I don't subscribe to anything. And you won't hear that rumor until there is a new cba that forces the rangers to do so.
The Rangers were probably looking at moving Gaborik after this season anyway. I'm sure they'd love to keep him, but the money just doesn't work after you start resigning your RFA's - and that's forgetting the decreasing cap.. It's math.

Hence all the talk of this possibly being the NYR's best shot at the cup..
