What you're not taking into account is that this cap ceiling drop affects everyone. There won't be a free agent bidding war frenzy. Especially not for the likes of Antropov or Hainsey. I like them both, but they're both depth players who are north of 30, they just won't command that much in a shrunken market. What teams out there do you envision have the ability (capspace) to drop money like that on Hainsey or Antropov?
good point
