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.
Roll back and redistribution?

I suppose it's not impossible, but the PA would have to get completely sugarbushed in negotiations for that to happen.

Secondly, there are a lot of teams who say they're losing money with a $20 million payroll so I don't see how they benefit from having to take on players with huge contracts.

Thirdly, Messenger brought up Yashin. What if nobody wants to take on the Yashin/Jagr type contracts? What then? Are they going to be forced on teams?
