Regarding the salary cap ... part of their proposal would be to allow teams to buy and sell cap space. While their current position is to move from a hard cap to a soft cap, with Fehr in the drivers seat for the NHLPA, and his constant references to how MLB works, a lot of folks expect him to start moving towards that same system.

Not so fun fact ... if there is a lockout, Fehr will be the first Executive Director to have presided through lockouts of two different sports.
