Fehr does have a point in saying the one professional sport that has avoided a work stoppage over the last two decades is Baseball, which doesn't have a Cap. Heavy luxury taxes on the Big Spending teams with the money collected going to the low revenue teams would serve the same purpose as a Cap and revenue sharing.
I think the lose of a cap would be devistating to a team like the Florida Panthers. Plain and simple, we do not have the money to go against the heavy spenders. Baseball is a poor example because the revenue difference between the two leagues is night and day. The NHL needs a salary cap, period.
