There are definitely other moving parts that have to be considered in the deal to make it work for all parties. You have to find a way to give some benefit to the top revenue making teams, which might include shorter time to UFA, etc.
I would be careful to not give too much competitive advantage to the rich teams. Easy these days to focus on what's wrong with the NHL because there is lots of talk about it but one thing they got right in the last CBA is a system that allows competitive balance and I really believe that is a core item worth saving and an initiative if they can stay the coarse on that will lead to continued and long term HRR growth. NFL and NHL might be the two leagues who are doing this the best in sports currently.
