The cap will go up greatly over the coming 8 years. On a regular basis. If we sign a player now to a 5.5m dollar deal, that contract will represent a portion to the cap that is equallent to 3.5-3.9m in 5-6 years and even less in Y 7-8.

You know, if a vet signs a 8 y contract now and still play decent hockey at the age of 36-37 (not that unusual at all), he is a steal and not a burden.
That is a good point the only thing is without knowing how much it will go up it is tough to say how much it would be worth in 6 years. If the cap barely goes up for the first 4 that could hurt
