I say yes, but based on if the NHL salary cap increases. That way the league can kind of stay in touch with the NHL. So, if the NHL raises their cap by 1m we would raise ours by the current ratio of 70m(our cap)/64.3m(nhl cap) or 1.088m. Already starting off with 70m has made it pretty easy to field a 30 man roster.

you have to look at what the problem is. 1st is we have 30% more players on our roster and 2nd is we have 30% less teams so there are more talented (higher paid players) available to us. I am at the cap limit now and next year when I extend the players whos contracts expiers i will still be at the cap limit and same for the next year. after that Im not sure I will be able to extend my players but I will allways be at the cap limit. I think most teams will be the same so fa will allways be a bargin because no one will have any cap space to spend on them. To compensate for this the cap should be 30% higher than the real NHL cap, then we would have closer to real fa. Like some of you have done is finding out how much your salaries would be if you extended everyone and it gives a true look at the problem. If we made our cap about 80M to 85M about 30% above the real cap we would still have to make some choices on fa but would also give us a more realalistic fa bidding.

If we all could extend all our players every year there wouldn't be much point to a cap anyway. Look at what CHI and PHI have had to do with their rosters the last couple years to stay within the cap. There's going to be some tough decisions for teams to make over the years but I think it adds strategy.I'm leaning towards an increase to $75m. After all this discussion I think it makes the most sense.
