Are the big market teams the losers here?

With the maximum 6-years contract they are proposing, if it would have been in place when the Hawks won the cup, they would not have been able to afford Hossa and not have won the cup. Another team would have been fortunate to have Hossa but this to me is what I call bad parity. That you can't have as much good players as you can. This is how the big markets will be penalized the most, esp. the fans of big markets, they'll have to relly on watching weaker teams. Your team generate money anyway, who cares, right.
If I was Phillie, TO, the Habs, etc...I would propose a "franchise player" rule for the biggest earners. You get the chance to have one player that you can pay what you want and it doesn't count against the cap.
