Very valid. Every team puts 31% of local into the pot in MLB and gets about $40 million back.

I think the NHL should do that with the player cut:
57% of HRR goes into the payroll fund and is evenly distributed to teams for payroll. Everyone can afford the midpoint, and anyone going to the cap is spending to win, everyone spending under the midpoint is a cheap jerk.

Think Toronto would vote for that? Spending $110 mil on players instead of $80 mil on Players+Revenue Sharing?
