I don't disagree. Frankly, I think this CBA has far too many loopholes that benefit large market teams--pre-Kovalchuk circumvention, ability to hide big contracts in the minors without them counting against the team's cap, etc.
Fehr will look to act in the best interests of the Union, which will require him to find ways to get more money to the players. The hard cap is something I think he'll try to get rid of. I'm guessing that he'll push for a soft cap system where teams will have to pay a "luxury tax" if they exceed the cap, something teams like the Habs, Leafs, Rags, and Flyers will be too willing to accept if it gives them a competitive advantage on the ice.
