And speaking of necessary, every team contributed $10m to the league's warchest, right? So of that $300m, how much of that will go to the Rangers, Chicago, or St. Louis? I'm betting nothing. That $300m will be used to keep the Carolinas and Pittsburghs of the world propped up.

Good point. thats 20% of the teams contributing 75% of the total loss. Though I believe in a soft cap, but 31M is too low to begin with.
