Going from a collectively bargained atmosphere towards the "Wild West" goes both ways.
I agree, but.... since every contract would need to be negotiated with each player individually, do you think Crosby's or Weber's agents wouldn't build in golden parachutes? They also could entertain bids from any team that wanted to bid, and the teams couldn't talk to each other about what was being offered. If there's no cap/CBA, bonuses, options, fringe benefits... a house on a tropical island.... anything would be possible.

Edit: I see others have said as much.
