Seriously? Are you unable to even recall the contents of your previous post?

And the 'much higher' cap has been around for a grand total of a shortened 48 game season and the preceding off season. Max cap in 11-12 was 64.3M. Max cap in 13-14 will be 64.3M. While yes, the cap in this shortened season was pro-rated to 70.2M, it was done so with each and every GM knowing full well that it was going to fall by the following season. There's barely a handful of GM's in the league that still managed to handcuff themselves despite knowing what was coming, and none of them happen on be on Iginla's speculated list.

And you're right, all rumors on the Internet are true, e5. What team we have on the ice and what GM we have, in other words, reality, do not factor in to conversation.
Don't be ridiculous. The point is, to suggest your view of the situation is the only correct one is presumptuous. To suggest the Kings aren't asking about Iginla as if you actually have access to the inner workings of the Kings management group, is simply unbelievable.

And now you've degenerated to this. Sad.
