Yes, very true. I should have specified that it has never worked in the past. I believe the Yankees have already stated they will not exceed the threshold under any circumstances. That will be a nice trick with againg ARod, CC, and Tex eating up about 40% of the payroll.
Back to hockey though...50% tax or anything close to that is not realistic for this CBA given the fact tghere already is a hard cap. Large market owners will argue that is all that is needed.
