The luxury tax in baseball is a disaster. It doesn't fix the problem, it placates the losers. MLB is not healthy, but revenue is high enough to mask the disparity. Why should the Pirates/Marlins etc spend money when they can lose with low payroll and rake in the luxury taxes? Losing needs consequences. Simply being a member of club "NHL" should not be enough. Phoenix should be on the hot seat. These are businesses, as is the NHL on the whole. Carrying around anchors does not make you more buoyant.
