I kinda figured that the cap will not be lowered simply because that would lead to yet another strike. But like many of you mentioned if the Cap is lowered just imagine the players out there at that point. MInnesota for example would have to let go of a guy like Heatly and we was one of the reasons Parise and Suter signed there in the first place. Could be an interesting summer to say the least.
I saw number of people suggest that if CBA lowers the cap then some teams would have to cup players to get under it. Are there any sources that support this even as a possibility? It has been mentioned that owners are looking to lowers the percentage of league revenues, which goes to players. This would cause cap to be lower. But it is much more likely that existing contracts would rolled back by some percentage just like the last time.
And getting players to agree to reduce their share would be a hard sell in the first place.
