Handshake deal between Leafs and NHL over Hamilton?
So where did this non-agreed agreement come from? When the lockout was in its infancy in 2004 the big teams of the league—the Flyers, Rangers, Black Hawks, Red Wings, Leafs etc—expressed concern about the loss of revenue. Bettman assuaged their anxieties with assertions that the desired salary cap would create even more revenue. For the Leafs—the organization with the highest revenue—the league quietly assured the club that they would quash any desire a team had to move into such an underexploited area. The Leafs wanted it all for themselves. The league needed the support of the Leafs and agreed.
Is this not illegal?
