As for the OP, sports socialism??? That doesnt even make sense.
The penalty imposed is having to eat MILLIONS of dollars. I fail to see why anything more needs to be imposed that isn't just a dollar amount. Perhaps make the team pay double the contract in a quasi-luxury tax system.

THe NHL needs to stop stripping advantages away from rich teams. Sooner or later rich teams will have all of their profits going to the league and even the poorest of the poor will be able to spend the same amount of money. The NHL hates success.
