Have all 35+ players' contracts count against the Cap on a cash basis, OR, have them sign one year contracts only... Everything else could be as below 35+ Players, with retirements and other situations. As it stands the 35+ contracts cripple teams... and the only purpose of the Rule was to prevent long escalated contracts that make the AAV lower... I don't believe the even really addressed it at all during the CBA negotiations... Insane!!!!
Why on earth would the NHLPA have wanted that?
