As the article notes though, they should be careful what they wish for. Personally, as someone who loves trade deadline day and the opening of the free agent signing period, this would be something approaching nirvana if it actually happened!

And as Kipper has said countless times on Hockey Central At Noon, if this was to happen the owners would be cutting each other's throats to sign players and any unity amongst the owners, whether real or not, would be out the window as guys like Illitch would be signing everyone possible and execs like Sather would be let of the leash to do as they wished.

Realistically, I doubt it would ever get that far but it is interesting to speculate as to what would happen if it did.

Ummm....I would absolutely love it if this happened. Every team would essentially be turned upsidedown. Crosby in Vancouver? Doubt it, but at least we would have a new core (hopefully).
