What does the CBA need to have to be fair?

Is a hard cap the answer or will a reasonable luxury tax (dollar for dollar at $40 mil) do?

A hard cap where players are guaranteed over half of the league's revenue IS fair.

I'm for the Hard cap. With the cap all teams should be competitive. With the luxury tax, it still won't stop rich teams like the Rangers and Leafs from trying to buy a championship.

Paying a player twice as much as he could garner from any other team would be difficult don't you think? There's no way the Rangers offer Holik 9 mil a season if they are ultimately going to pay 18/yr for him.

I'd say a dollar for dollar tax would help stem the competition challenge...how about $0.5 increase in the tax every 5 million?

I answered hard cap but maybe that's not the answer, there weren't many choices and this question just shouldn't be a poll. A point that we fail to see is that the word fair has nothing to do with this CBA, if the two parties were interested in writing a fair CBA the would of begun talks a long time ago. Someone on either side will get the sharper end of the stick and will concede on a number of issues they might of held dear for a long time.

A hard cap where the total is tied to revenues. I'd also include a minimum where total payroll has to equal at least a certain level as well.

I couldn't agree more, especially with the the last part. One question would be, what should the minimum cap be? 50% of the hard cap? 67% of the hard cap? This would be 20 or 30 million if the hard cap was 40 million per year. Also, what would the penalty be for being "under" the minimum cap? Loss of draft picks?
