One of the biggest things being that you can trade salary! Burkie won! hahaha If they agree to it, of course.
Burke doesn't have a problem with cap circumvention as long as it's on his terms .

Can't you agree that being able to trade salary will do a hell of lot to facilitate more trades in this league? Trades are exciting for the fans, after all.

To play games. Obviously, once again, the league is expecting a yes, or a no answer. Instead, they'll get a counter proposal that cherry picks points again. It'll be like: 9 year contract limit, 20% variance, compliance buyout coming from owner's share, etc. The owners won't even bother reading it, and just like the last "counter-proposal", it'll be rejected in less than 5 mins.

I don't see a problem with that, to be honest.

Thats different
Now they just need to get rid of the weighted portion, so there's no benefit for finishing dead last. ******* all the tanking BS.

I don't see a problem as a Leaf fan either but i also also didn't see a problem with other cap circumventions like back sliding deals or burying NHL contracts in the minors .

The way i see it however is either you want a cap to even the playing field and control costs or you get rid of it . Building in cap circumvention clauses makes the league look mickey mouse .

Can't see us not having a season at this point, but we have a peak and valley of negotiations to go through yet. At this point both sides are trying to squeeze juice out of a turnip.

How about rewarding teams that actually put a quality product on the ice . The cup winners get the 1st pick and then the picks filter down to the worst team that get's the 30th pick . That will teach the tanking mother ****ers . I mean why should the Kings get punished for putting together a cup winning team .

It's not exclusively cap circumvention, though. I think there are plenty of legitimate reasons why this is a good thing, as well.

Every team should try its hardest to make the championship run every season, in any sport. Not giving any more of a guarantee WRT pick priority to the team who finished last, or the team who finished 1 point out of playoffs would help enforce this.

Why should the same turd GMs who literally have done nothing but sell off a bunch of their players keep getting their welfare cheques?
