  1. It's no fair that Nik Lidstrom makes $10 Million a year and Jamie Rivers makes $400,000.
    I propose a system that will equalize player values.
    Every player will make $1.3 Million, no matter how much they produce.
    That way, the good players who work hard and score goals get $1.3Million.
    And the bad players with no skill or no work ethic make $1.3 Million.


    The bad players are in the NHL and therefore they should have the same ability to to make money as the good players, regardless of how competent they are ...

    By definition, having great teams is unfair. Because not everyone can be great. The solution then becomes obvious.

    If ever a team has to let go a player because they cant afford him, there is obviously something wrong with the system.

    What if we gave the owners a guaranteed profit. $300mil a year. $10mil each. A healthy business return. If revenues go up, the players get all of it. The owners money is fixed and guaranteed.
