    We'd all heard 90% as the number.. Bedard is now reporting it's 89%. Not a big difference, but still different.

    The fact that expanded season rosters is still on the table is interesting.

    First I've seen of the 89% figure. Lots of details still in flux. I know the 48% split to players is now either 47-48 or between 46.5 and 48 depending on who knows what... Although the projected 3 stadium building credits may be most of what makes that % float.

    Maybe the owners aren't caving to some of these late in the game health and safety and settlement demands so much as shaving the % in exchange for looking like they are...

    The expanded rosters for this season have been one of my big hopes - I think it makes for a win win win all around - for the players, the organizations and the fans.

    With so little time before the start of the season many teams will have to choose between keeping rookies with no experience but potential or tested veterans who can immediately improve the quality of this season's games.

    It's in everyone's best interest not to force that choice.

    The salary floor of course is even more important to the evolving game than the cap - and it can be expected to ultimately increase competition for players.
