(they wouldn't even do it all the time!). While these Superstars would go off to NA and make the NHL Hundreds of millions of dollars! Wait a minute, that's not fair!
One of the biggest problems that I have with NHL. There should be clear "price list".

Player A plays 100 NHL games. His home club gets X amount of dollars.
Player A plays 1000 games or whatever. X amount of dollars.
Player A wins some award. X amount of dollars for that.

Fair and square. Not this BS system that is in place today.

Some of these players pretty much saved the entire franchises. Look how Washington have benefited from Ovechkin. What Dynamo got in return? Pretty much nothing. Malkin goes and wins Hart, Art Ross, Conn Smyth. Magnitka gets nothing. And it's not like clubs can't afford to pay a few millions.
