But as far as the NHL right now, it's an incredibly flawed model without a big TV deal, the players are making too much from a league bleeding money. I don't know if it's the league that should be folded or just find a way to completly reconstruct their deals with the players, maybe even stop considering the union at all and don't sign any CBAs, wait each year in the fall and watch wich players cross the line. And you offer this:
Once you become a NHL player, you make 350 thousand per year salary. Nothing more, nothing less. That's every players. And this will never change. And if you reach certain plateaus, then you get big bonuses. Say a guy would score 50 goals one season, he could get something like 5 million. I think that would be pretty damn fair. And at the same time, the business is healthy. But some franchises would have to disolved first so there's no weak link to the new system.
You should probably learn a thing or two about antitrust law before proposing ridiculous nonsense such as this.
That actually goes for much of what's been posted in this thread. The idea of the NHL owners dissolving the league (and losing billions of dollars in franchise value), then restarting it (a collusive action that violates the Sherman Act) is just sheer lunacy.
