Contraction is not the answer.

There are alot of ways to improve the state of the game.
-they can enlarge the nets a bit.
-4 on 4 for the full game, not just overtime.
-trim rosters from 23 to 19
10 forwards
7 defenseman
2 goalies
this would lower each teams overall payroll and would mean that instead of having 23x30=690 players in the league, you'd have 19x30=570; that would eliminate alot of the "less skilled players" that we are all talking about, 120 of them to be exact. This would open the game up alot more and force teams to break away from the trap.

theres also alot more that can be done, but these are just a few ideas that have been kicked around.

contraction is a stupid man's solution, and im not saying gary bettman is stupid......well, actually, i am, i think he' stupid. but there are tons of other things that could be looked at.
