Transition rules in 2013 CBA - speculation

What will they contain?

Well, it's been rumored that there may be an "early retirement" penalty to team that signed long deal.

Rumored $60mm cap.

Rumored "single player" exclusion from cap.

Rumored compliance buy out option (not counting against team cap, but counting against player share).

(Some of the highlights from 2005 CBA transition rules included setting of initial cap, compliance buyout -- not counting against cap, 24% roll back, plus additional limitation on Jagr's contract to get it below 20% max, grandfathering in options. Also included how draft order was determined, "snake draft" for 2005.)
