And the luxury tax which props up smaller teams from the pockets of the rich franchises was won from a long hard battle by the union in rejecting a hard cap, so you are completly wrong on all accounts

How as an NHL player could you not look at the MLB and then not take the advice and guidance of Don Fehr?
oh, if you're arguing from a players POV then, yeah, of course MLB is the best... sorry, i thought you were talking about what was best for the league or its fans

the MLB system would unquestionably be the worst system for NHL fans though, and its not even close
