Sorry if I'm dragging this off topic.
Actually you touch something quite interesting : imagine players create their own league (they aren't poor !!) and start again with new rules with no salary cap !!
the big winners will definitely be Canadians .... the Leafs !!

If I was a players ... i'll consider such options and would talk about it in the NHLPA.
if I was a team owner ... i would fear such a move and would push it too far !
