For those mostly for the players, I have a question:

If the players 'win' and hockey becomes like baseball in the worst case scenerio, or even like the NBA, will you be alright with losing Malkin and other players that came up through the system to teams that are in big cities and can spend whatever they want on players? How will a change in the current cap system help us as fans keep a team like the Pens mostly together?
I'm not familiar with the NBA CBA, other than that it has a 50/50 revenue split. What is it about their CBA that would be a doomsday scenario for Pittsburgh if the NHL adopted a system like it?

And there's no chance the NHL ends up with a deal like the MLB, so we might as well drop that idea.
