To collapse the cap by over $10 is a mistake. It will cause too many players to be available for nothing or next to nothing. It's like saying to half the teams, "you must allow one of your first liners to be a UFA." Yeah, that will be good for league stability.
Let's make it $70.2 the first year and set the floor of the second year at $65 unless 50% is above that.
For the Rangers, it would mean that the "casualties" would be two of Boyle, Rupp and Pyatt, who'd be replaced with a rookie like Miller, Jean or Hrivik. Turnovers like this would be ok for the league. It would be far preferable to having a sudden waterfall of guys like Gaborik on the market for little-to-no return (remember: supply and demand, as well as desperation, sets the price).
