Also, don't forget that a rich team trading away cap space will have equally as much of their cap space used for NO player. Just dead cap weight, if that make sense. That doesn't help them get better. They'll just get a replacement player for cheaper. Doesn't mean they'll get better.
agreed here. This will only help both teams involved, while making it possible for even more trades! I must say I really like these rules. I think it will really help the sport. Those who have the money to go to the cap ceiling and beyond have ways of putting their extra money to good use, and those clubs with not a lot of money have more ways of acquiring players for lesser money.
