Awesome.


A lot of that is true but I also think it'll be on the teams to properly run their franchises. If they had 30 healthy franchises, this process wouldn't be so grating.

Bettman has to work hard to keep all his teams capable of competing. This last deal seemed good for the owners with the salary cap but eventually it skewed heavily towards the players and nobody forced teams to sign players to backdiving deals to undermind the cap. Some of these new rules are in place to protect teams from themselves.
