As it is, a decade of inflation and increased popularity of the nhl could hypothetically result in a cap of $100 million and a floor of $84 million, which would be a very negligible difference. Teams like Florida and the New York Islanders are already struggling to make the minimum as it is: further increases will just put more strains on the small markets. It seems obvious to me that the cap floor should be made a percentage of the cap. 60-70% sounds like a fair number to me at first glance. any thoughts?
