my take on things looks like this....

They create a ladder type performance based salary w/ salary cap.

salaries base start at say

then incentive bonuses are the same rate for every player. and have 2 seperate levels.
eg. 25 goals=200,000 and 50 goals=500,000

team base salary cap is 40 mil excluding incentives. anything over 40 mil, and the money must be doubled and given back to the league (like speed suggested) and used mainly to balance the canadian/ american market. but my twist on the rule is that the absolute cap lies at 45 mil.

eg. if a team wants to make a deal that may exceed this amount, they'd have to put another guy on waivers, or make a deal to keep themselves under 45.

i think with this type of more socialistic marxist type NHL, all 30 teams can contend, and this would almost completely eliminate financial trades and salary dumps. (ie. oilers can sign their doug weights and anson carters) because if an elite player was to be moved he would make the same thing in edmonton as he would in new york.

thats about it, i know theres still some holes to be filled but i don't get paid for this so i will leave it to b. goodenow and g. bettman, if i miss any NHL action next yr, i will be very angry guys.
