So, essentially the Habs were a well managed hockey club and they won Cups because the other five teams were not as well run. They didn't want to get rid of the 'free market' system of the day that rewarded well managed hockey teams and go to a system that rewards poorly run clubs (i.e . the draft).

I'm glad they didn't get their way, but I kind of see where they are coming from.

And hockey in the 1960's sounds a lot like professional soccer today.
