I made a comment in another thread, and it was quickly swamped with other commentary, and decided to promote it to it's own thread. Pardon the Dr. Suess title, but did Gary Bettman's comments about an upper cap on salaries acting as a "magnet", create an opportunity for the PA, to shape an offer with a higher salary floor? This would promote the parity fans are looking for, and ensure more salary $$$ would be available for the players. This could happen without any perceived consequence for the owners, if they view these upper caps acting as "magnets", pulling team salaries toward the upper limit. If there is behind the scenes negotiating, I would encourage the PA to incorporate this into a workable solution. If they could get an upper boundary to $44-5 million, with a floor of $37-38 million, perhaps all parties would be satisfied. Any thoughts?
