MLB has agreed to let teams use revenue sharing for player development as opposed to FA signings.
Thanks for that. It is AMAZING how much NHL fans just gobble up whatever Gary Bettman spoon feeds them. The guy sure has a track record to be taken at his word, right? The most recent example was denying the LA Kings were for sale. A few months later it came out that they are in fact for sale.

MLB has had no work stoppages for close to 20 years, unlike the NHL they engage in significant revenue sharing which keeps franchises that shouldn't exist afloat, and they force those teams to spend that money on improving their ballclub.

So OF COURSE Donald Fehr is the bogeyman.
