Just my 2 cents on the matter... I'm ok with either way, but the 64.3 for next year makes more sense to me.
I agree here. I don't think we should go to $70.2M next year because we have a full year to deal with the change. The few well off teams would probably benefit from a year of increased spending but many of the cash strapped teams would be left behind for another year.

I also agree here. I think we should stick with the NHL format, and if at all possible, continue using the NHL lottery results for our own lottery results, assuming our seasons are done on time.
