If the purpose of a limit on variance is to make the cap hit more reflective of the salary, then wouldnt the variance alone take care of it. Also can't they just redefine how the cap is calculated this time to prevent the deals they don't want.
On the surface, what you say makes sense.
But in reality, these types of contract issues affects only maybe 5% of players, so why even spend time on it ?
Just give the owners what they want here and move on to other issues that affect a majority of NHLPA members (the star players who get these deals will still get their big $$). Use this as another chip in the game as you negoitiate for something more meaningful.
