Two ways to address that,

1) Take out the weakest link.
2) Make all the links weak.

Make all the links weak? So you mean if the playing field is even, right? What I don't understand is, why to so many fans of large market teams, this such a problem? Drafting, and scouting are the way a lot of teams have had to operate, and to have to bring the large market teams down to that level seems like such a crime to a lot of you guys. We value our prospects so much, and we think guys like Wellwood, Stajan, and Cola are gonna be great players, well then we should have nothing to worry about if our teams scouts do their job right.
And taking out the weakest links, is not even in the NHLPA's vocabulary. The NHLPA will not want to lose jobs, which is what contracting will do.
