So no grandfathering is required because after the rollback and redistribution, all teams are at the required level.

Buttman will have achieved league wide mediocrity/parity.
In hindsight it kind of makes you wish we still had Hoglund, Reichel, Lumme signed to over inflated long terms deals ..

Would be fun to see the look on the poor small market owners faces when they get slapped with those players in balancing measures ..

It would make for a good MasterCard commercial .. PRICELESS !!!!
