It doesn't matter if we have teams in Hamilton, Quebec, Seattle or wherever. Because if they go through with their payroll tied to average revenue plan, PIT, OTT, WIN, MIN, SJ, LA, and EDM are going to join the list of have nots by 2020. We'll have 11 good markets and 19 ones that are struggling to keep up.
Yes, but as we've discussed before, it would mean a shift in HRR to use the median revenue... which means a decrease in HRR, which Fehr would never ever accept. They might have been able to get that initially, but to try to do that now will not work.
"Itís not as if Donald Fehr was lying to us, several players said. Rather, itís as if he has been economical with information, these players believe, not sharing facts these players consider to be vital."
