Good news for us is higher the floor the bigger chance we can dump Rolston. Remember Florida only has about 17.5 million signed for next year.
Even with the floor, the amount teams that only go to the floor will just be rolled back further due to the inflation. Ultimately the players, as a whole, will be paid the same whether they inflate it or not, I believe, because ultimate player payout is linked to league revenue, not the cap number.

I do agree that the extra inflation helps the Devils cap management this year.

Well the Cap number is linked to revenues as well. The problem is the growth of the big teams revenues are far outpacing the growth of the smaller teams. So while the cap keeps going up those small teams are keeping pace meaning they have to spend more and lose more each year.

The issue going forward for the next CBA probably isn't going to be players vs. owners, but rather owners vs. owners. They way you fix that problem is not only widen the cap range a bit more (say to $20 million), and more extensive revenue sharing. Problem is teams like the Leafs are going to fight against greater revenue sharing.
