would means (probably) no Emelin on the Habs, no Markov, no Diaz, no Weber, no OV for the Caps, maybe no Datsyuk for the wings (34 already, ).

also means HUGE signing bonuses for the top players so if they get canned they get most of the money anyway.

we're not talking about the NFL here where lots of teams make good to great profits, so I dont think that many would like to can a player a year after giving a 15 Mil signing bonus... would pretty much guarantee small market teams wont get any star players, ever.

we'd be back to the 90's and early 00's where only a few teams (remember the Colorado-Detroit-Philly-NY days ?) had a decent to good chance at the cup.
