I think it's a good pro-parity move too, though I wish it was accompanied by a big raise to the cap floor that forced everyone to spend about as much money. Maybe that will be Fehr's last Hail Mary, it would be fun to watch what Charlie Wang and a few others say

That being said, there's no way that the Rangers, the Wild and the other teams who have already thrown money at players trying to win in the short-term didn't have to be dragged kicking and screaming.
