when GMs/owners are criticized for not watchin how much they spend on player contracts - therefore any losses are really their fault, my mind turns to the game on the ice which the players play within certain rules, rules designed to try to present the best games possible while trying at the same time to keep the players at least relatively safe.
perhaps instead we could eliminate the rules for the most part, let the players be responsible for their own actions and see how that goes. Chaos and a quick end to th NHL.
extreme idea, but the point is the health of the game. I believe the owners are really trying to balance things out enought to keep the game healthy. If they can come up with a rule that keeps roster building competitive without severe losses - and I think they know that the threat of some financial loss is necessary - then they, like the players, will have a set of rules that can let theit GMs compete for the best roster possible without sustaining unreasonable losses, just like the players play the game under agreed to rules that, for the most part, result in entertaining games without severe losses (ie fan interest and injuries)
