Quick questions/observation...

without taking a side, I had this observation/question. Let's say there is a $31 million salary cap in place. Now say you're the New York Rangers. You're a player that has the opportunity to make the same money in Canada as you do with the Rangers. Does this put the Rangers at a huge competitive disadvantage? Who in his right mind would want to live in New York, paying NY rents or housing, when they can make the same money in Canada, or most everyplace else in the NHL, and live a bit fatter while saving a bigger portion of his paycheck? Yeah, New York is nice, but a $1 million salary here compared to a $1 million salary some place else is a big difference.
