Other than the brainwash notion passed on by Goodenov that the players will NEVER take a salary cap, what is really wrong with it? The players will end up with a cap regardless - this year, next year or if there is a new league (the WHA has already instilled a cap) Why not take it now, so at least the season will be saved and the players will not miss any more pay cheques. Robert Esche said even if there is a $100Million Cap, the players will not accept that? So, what is so wrong with putting in say a $50M cap. The players will still make millions and with $50M, will most likely stay with their same teams. (Heard on the radio that the NHL was about to propose a $50M cap, until Linden stepped in this week). What are the pros/cons regarding a high ceiling cap?
