Those arent tools for the players, those are tools for the owners. They are the ones who lobbied for them in the last agreement, and currently are using them to keep salaries down.

Surely you arent complaining the fact that a team like Ottawa having to qualify Chris Neil at $770K from 700k is the cause of the leagues money losing problems.
