After some thought this is my suggestion.

- all players on a two-way get a year extended on their current contract.
- all GM's get to extend another year on up to 7 players.
- rest of the the players lose a year off their contract and if they were in the last year they can be signed to an extension as usual or they will be free agents.


I feel this let's GM's have more control on their teams.

I like this suggestion as 7 playersget the chance to keep the team "core" and then if you have some you may want to let walk then you can as well. This should benefit every team in the league IMO

Lock out

Question if the salary cap goes down 10m like it looks like the NHL wants and we mimic the real NHL can we get like a free buyout or something to help put us under the cap or are we just going to play with 70.2m this year and worry about that next year?? This is if there is a season

We could apply a 15% roll-back on all existing contracts. What about a 10% roll-back coupled with a buy-out? Just throwing it out there.

For this season the cap for our league has already been set so it will remain at $70.2m, if cap goes down next season we will make the necessary adjustments then.

If there is no season I think we will go with a keeper style where a certain number of players get a year added to their contracts.

After crunching the numbers, I feel that a ten percent rollback on all current contracts would be the perfect solution.

If we don't add a year to a player's contract that has an expiring contract can we sign them to an extension?

I really like this suggestion. It seems fair  and addresses the fact that the salary cap is certain to go down. I would also be in favour of a 10% roll back as that also seems fair.
