Do you really think the teams who spend to the cap (and over using the minors) are going to NOT protect themselves with either opt-outs or a buy-out option in the next CBA? Really?
Teams will spend money. I fully expect the usual suspects to be shopping like usual this summer -- Flyers, Rangers, and perhaps even the Sabres. And they're BoG reps are going to go hard for an amnisty or buy-out or some sort of reduction that other teams will fall in line behind because of the revenue sharing pie. Big spending teams need only threaten to shorten up their payments into that to get smaller spending teams in line with that sort of "compromise".
If none of these guys are signed, the next words out of Fehr's mouth ought to be "collusion" and "lawsuit". The premium guys
get their day in the Stupid Money sun.
