superstars will still get paid millions. the "lower end" will get paid nothing.
They would still be pulling a paycheck as opposed to what happening now. a fringe player making 500K in the NHL get's a small percentage of that in the AHL, even if that is 25% (which I believe is high, if I'm not mistaken standard AHL salary for NHL'ers is 10%) then he's making 100K a year, and that's a big drop, actually that's less than 1 Bobby Holik check.
