Teams agree to a weakish luxury tax. However the luxury tax is taken from the players salaries not paid on top off that. $0.50 in the $1. Rangers spend $80m, which is an overspend by 40m. They get hit with a bill for $20m. Every Ranger player gets their salary docked by 25%. Think of the advantages. More money for the poor teams. The big money market players would be helping their little market comrades. The players would be ones calling for restraint!
