At least not the way most hockey fans would want and more specifically Gary Bettman wouldn't want because it wouldn't bring the 30 team NHL any closer to playing on a level playing field.

Go Coyotes - I agree, these ideas we have shared only provide the basis or framework for an agreement. Once lawyers and execs get their hands on it they will insure that nobody but another overpriced lawyer can understand anyway!
