lol. funny how a large chunk of the revenues being shared with the bottom tiered clubs comes from the players themselves. this form of revenue sharing is a joke (which, as an avs fan, I'm grateful for because I want as little of my money funding other teams). they should instead rename it as a "financial assistance plan" as it closely mimics how much money canadian clubs were receiving from the "canadian assistance plan".

thx for the post btw. there was another important point that i found very interesting...the NHL intends to have a payroll gap of 16 M in the following seasons (as I understand from your post). this means if revenues reach 2.2 B in a few years (i.e. pre-lockout revenues), the cap becomes a lofty 48.3 M.
