    New NHLPA tactic....accept first offer

    With the Leagues proposal, the cap would go down to 50.8 Mil.  Using cap geek, only the Islanders, Coyotes and Sens are under that number.  How does Bettman think teams like the Wild, Nucks or Flyers are going to shed 18 million to start the season?  Accept the offer, the GM's would be screwed. 
    This just shows how ridiculous the opening offers are.  The negotiations haven't really begun yet, the posturing however is in full swing.

    there would be salary rollbacks. so if you're getting 7 million, 10% of the cap, and the cap goes down to 50, you get 5.

    Aren't there legal ramifications to that?  These are signed contracts.  Are their terms tied to a working collective agreement?

    they are negotiating a collective bargaining agreement. obviously, that would be part of the negotiations. they aren't just going to cut 20 mill off the cap there might not be enough cap space in the league to handle all the current contracts were that the case

    average team salary is roughly 58 mill. if the cap was lowered to 50 million, without salary rollbacks, there wouldn't be enough cap room in the NHL to cover all contracts. so obviously there would be rollbacks

    someone refresh my memory were there salary rollbacks after the past lockout (rollbacks of current contracts)

    Speaking of salary rollbacks, Jay Leno just took a huge paycut.
