Possibly, I took Machiavelli's number... It doesn't really matter though as a simple one time paycut won't fix the system.

Hard Cap

The NFL is a great league and the cap works well. I don't actually beleive that system will work in the NHL. The NHL's focus is to curve player contacts which is fine. The NFL's system doesn't curve the pay out to the player. Manning gets paid I believe 5M a season but got a 35M signing bonus. How is this cutting salary? It just changes how its paid. Does the NHL have something in place for bonue payments? In not sure.

i still think that a salary top for the players is the solution ; if you fix a salary top at 6 000 000 $ per exemple , than , you are more able to limit your budget .Since it is only about 10 - 15 % of the players that are winning more than that money , i am sure that all the other players would be ok with this way to proceed.

fix the salaries to top 6,000, 000 $ / players
fix a tax for the teams that have a payroll over 40, 000 , 000 $ , and as someone said , a jump in the draft is an exellent idea...

fix an overall limit to 60, 000, 000 $ budget for a team salaries...

fix a top for the rookies

i am sure that it would be great for the two partners , exepted for the primadonas whom would have a big pay cut . By the way , if you fix a salary limit , when a player would be free agent , since he couln't receive more money from another team , i am sure that there will be less move of players , so more sens of belonging for the fans and the players ....

They have to defer the bonus on a number of years, it still counts in the salary cap. (in the NFL) So the 35M signing bonus will still mean 35M less in payroll for the Colts eventually.

My bad if I'm wrong, I thought I remember Souray saying that (about a 10 % cut) from Sweden, but I could easily be wrong. Couldn't find the link.
