I believe Jagr got some special dispensation on his due to some of the wording of his contract and the split pay issue, but there were players that took more than a 24% rollback as they were still over max. The CBA is actually very explicit about the max issue. If cap lowers, max players get reduced. If cap goes back up, their salaries do not go back up. I initially thought this was going to be a grievance type issue until I got to see the wording in the CBA, and as it was signed, it is very clear. I think the only claim the players would have would be to prove that the league manipulated numbers in order to temporarily lower cap to trim max players salaries.
