I'd say it seems like a good idea to keep the cap at 64,3m for 2012-13, 13-14 and 14-15 and then we see where it goes after that. No point in adding 6m in cap space for one season, just to go back to 64,3m again. As long as the agents also remember this in the demands when we're re-signing players for next season (especially in the case of 1-year NHL deals).

I'm all for the new lottery. We should stick as close as possible to the NHL in the rules.
Assuming the %'s stay the same, it lowers the chance of the 30th team in the league keeping the 1st OV from 48,2% to 25% and drafting 2nd go up from 51,8% to 75%. There's a similar change for the rest of the lottery teams. The chances of the 29th team to draft 1st are 18,8%, 25% to stay 2nd (down from 42%) and 56,2% to draft 3rd (up from 39,2%), etc.
