While I think Prophet's attempt at a new-type structure is both unique and innovative, it still leaves individual statistics as the primary tool. Why base anything on individuality at all? This is a *team* game, isn't it?

I've not done any kind of research or put more than just simple thought into this, but it seems to me that if you base each person's salary on the team's statistics, and then factored in their overall position on said team (using the individual stats as the secondary - or even tertiary tool), you'd not only get a fairer method of dealing with the players individually, but also would get a system for the teams to compete within. There would be no specific salary cap, but minimums and maximums for each topic within the team concept. (I.E. a team PK at the top of the league gets X dollars, and ice time for each player on that PK earns them a certain amount.)

Anyhow, it's just an idea I've put only cursory thought into, and it would never work since the NHLPA will never accept socialist regimes, but it could potentially solve a lot of problems.
