a new idea for a cba

on another thread, an islander fan blamed his teams operating losses on their terrible lease agreement. This lease agreement didn't stop islander ownership from signing yashin, peca, and hammer to long term deals. In other words, they are living way beyond their means and driving up the costs for every team in the league. The islanders have lost over 30 million in the last 3-4 years.

I have an idea for a new cba. Keep the old agreement but punish the teams who are bad business operators. For every nickle you lose in hockey operations, you would be forced to put another nickle into an equalization fund to be distributed amongst profitable teams. The league would create standard accounting practises and audit every quarter.

If the islanders owners want to be big shots and try to buy a cup, they give every other team owner in the league money for compesation. The unwise spenders would subsidize everyone else. Teams that are located in markets that can't support an nhl franchise would be forced to move.
