Caps

The biggest reason that I see the home grown talent having merrit is that it does not penalize teams for developing and using a good minor league and scouting system. It could of course be a little more liberal, like if the player has played less then 100 games for another franchise then he qualifies for the home grown player thing . . . what this could do is allow for team like the Edmonton Oilers or the Vancouver Canucks to retain their high end talent without penalty . . . When the Rangers go and sign Bobby Holik to a 9 mill a year contract pushing them well over the cap, the teams that are in the cap get a portion of the Cap penalty. This re-alocated wealth allows the Pengiuns, Preds, Habs, and Oilers to sign the Mike Comrie's and David Legwands without encrouching on the cap.
