The reason they didn't implement this plan was because the NHLPA shot it down, and the reason the NHLPA shot it down had nothing to do with its quality as a plan and more to do with the timing of when it was presented (and possibly a hope to use it as a bargaining chip in the lockout, although that didn't end up happening).

Considering they actually got the Board of Governors to agree on this plan (which is impressive in its own right) I would have to imagine that, if nothing else, it will be a starting point for future planning.
