I think that would make more sense than ruining every teams' cap.
That's what they're planning to do--set the cap for 2013-2014 based on estimated pro-rated revenue from a partial season. But just using a 48:82 ratio isn't an accurate measurement when you consider things like the teams still play 100% of the playoff games.
