nhl- Leafs Lunch

They have a round table going today and someone mentioned he received an email today from an agent. The agent stated based on the LA Times story which outlined the CBA, the majority of his players would reject the CBA.
Also mentioned the part of the CBA which states the top player is limited to 20% of the team cap. Therefore, if the cap is $37m, the most a player could make would be $7.4m. Now, does this mean the team cap is, or what the league cap is? If it is the team cap, and let's say Carolina has a cap of $28, then the highest paid player could only make $5.6m as opposed to a team with a $37m cap, which could pay a player up to $7.4m.
