Do you think it would give the NHLPA incentive to accept a cap if the league said that money used to re-sign players wouldn't count against the cap? For example: These are hypothetical numbers Sidney Crosby signs his first contract with Team X for $1 million per year. His next contract is for $4 million per year. $3 million of that does not count against the cap. But his next contract is for $5 million per year and only $1 million of that would not count against the cap. etc etc. Any re-signings for less count fully against the cap. ie... if he signs a $3 million deal after the $4 mil, nothing happens with the $1 million discrepancy. Anyone like that idea from a financial standpoint? I mean, obviously from a fan standpoint, it's great because teams would want to keep their players. But I mean is that a concession towards the NHLPA?
