Still, not sure I like it. I guess it's just because I dislike the cap and don't mind "circumvention" attempts.
I am in the same boat. IMHO, the cap should be a soft cap with revenue sharing toing to small market teams. Let the Rangers pay a 150M salary if they want. Just that 80M of that above the 70M soft cap would then be doubled and paid into a revenue sharing pool (160M would be paid by the Rangers to a revenue sharing pool in my world).

It would allow teams to spend as much as they want and still benefit the **** market teams that shouldn't exist.
