The problem with the analysis is that Bershire looks at salary as a percentage of cap. In reality, even in pre cap days when teams had $80M - unlimited cap space, no player that I'm aware of made more then $10. So to conclude that as the cap goes up, the top tier players will get aperçu take is a bit much to assume IMO.

Add to that and he's also assuming that PK basically wins the Norris EVERY year and stays the bestdefensman in the NHL and will demand top dollar.

Not sure any of these scenarios are realistic. I'd say price signs for close to a bit more than what Price got $6.5-$7M for a long term deal. Under very small circumstances can I se PK getting $9-12M a year, regardless or what the cap is. Would Crosby get $20M!?
