If and obviously it's a big if at this point, the owners manage to get a Hard Salary Cap put into place, along the lines of what they're speaking 54% of total revenues, I don't see how or even WHY they are even worrying about items like: Individual salary cap Entry level salary cap and length of years Arbitration system etc. etc. If a team can only spend to a maximum of $38 million, why should owners or Bettman care how that money is split up ??? If a team is dumb enough to pay someone $10 million or 25% of their allotment, then let them. They'll pay for it on the ice. If someone wants to pay Sidney Crosby $6 million as a rookie, go ahead.
