But ya in the end the teams with money(and fan support) will come out ahead, and why shouldn't they.
This is absurd, as Shane Doan goes around the league telling anyone and everyone that he's thinking about MAYBE leaving Phoenix if someone will blow their offer out of the water... maybe.
Why not just demand that players must stay with their draft teams until they are traded or cut?
That way Nashville and Phoenix can keep their players.
Everyone will still have to pay their players the cap floor... but players can not leave. They can live in their million dollar hockey prisons for their entire careers.
Fair? It would be best for the league, right? Best for the fans?
