It seems the CBA was mostly concerned with upper limit regulations and I can't seem to find anything on lower limit rules. The scenario I'm wondering about would be if a team were significantly under the cap except for potential bonus money: - what would happen if a team feel $2M short of the cap floor after Game 82 ended because bonuses became unattainable? - what would happen if they had a full roster in the last few games of the season, but bonuses were wiped out putting them under? - would you expect the PA to argue to the league that either case amounts to circumvention and should be dealt with as harshly as the Kovalchuk contract? I'm curious because the CBA is about revenue linkages and the cap floor sets a minimum standard for how much players will be paid. I just can't imagine the PA staying too quiet if rarely attained bonus structures could cause a shortfall in their share.
