A false moment of clarity.

The cap was:

2005-06 - 39.0
2006-07 - 44.0
2007-08 - 50.3
2008-09 - 56.7
2009-10 - 56.8
2010-11 - 59.4
2011-12 - 64.3
2012-13 - 70.2 (really 60 million but prorated up to 70.2 million)
2013-14 - 64.3

Most of the players PK is being compared to, such as Mike Green and Alexander Edler, signed their second contracts when the cap was lower than it is now. Further, there's no reason the cap should stop rising by 8%/year, as owners raise ticket prices every single year. The cap can easily be at 75 million by 2015-2016.
