So let me stress this point again, as confirmed by multiple sources yet again around the NHL and NHLPA over the past few days, the idea that the NHL would return next season with a salary cap lowered by millions of dollars and teams scrambling to fit current player salaries under that lower cap makes very little sense. Both the NHL and NHLPA can at their whim — if they both agree of course — to shift aside the current CBA rules on these matters and do what’s right in such an exceptional circumstance. So the salary cap next season, whatever that number ends up being, will make sense for everyone involved.
