I think it benefits the Canucks in the sense that Vancouver will always spend to the salary cap, while most of the other teams in their proposed division likely won't. You have teams like L.A., Phoenix, and Anaheim that will be significantly below the cap. Who knows how things will play out in Edmonton, but this is an organization that is currently well below the cap. Currently both San Jose and Calgary are spending close to the cap, but does anyone realistically believe these teams are "locks" to spend to the cap every year?
It should give the Canucks an inherent advantage going forward, and we all know there is nothing wrong with that
