still say the simplest and best way is a soft cap followed by a luxury tax until you hit the higher hard cap. let the rangers and leafs spend to closer to their own true 50% if they are willing to pay the luxury tax and then give that luxury tax $$ to those bottom teams as revenue sharing.
yeah it might create a bigger separation between the top and bottom payrolls, but many of those bottom teams would start turning profits with that extra money, which would allow them to spend more $$ on their own payrolls which would hopefully lead to them increasing their own revenue...and the hard cap stops the teams from getting too out of control if they luxury tax doesn't stop them. but for most teams that tax will act like a hard cap anyway.
of course then again its taken them this long to figure out 50/50. could you imagine how long it would take them to figure out how to work out a luxury tax system with the proper percentages and such we'd never see hockey again lol
