Rules for the uncapped year

Here is an interesting article that highlights the new rules that will come about in 2010 if a new CBA isn't reached and there is an uncapped year. This is especially interesting because it could actually have a very dramatic impact on how teams approach 2009.

I think many were predicting that 2009 would almost be a spending free-for-all since there was an assumption 2010 would be uncapped, and teams should go crazy back-loading deals now to get guys under this year's cap and hold them through the uncapped year. These rules seem to put fairly significant barriers in place to prevent that from happening.

I cannot validate these, so I can't vouch for how accurate this article is.
