    New Revenue Sharing with a twist.

    The NHL will allot $200 million to revenue sharing; in ssence to help have not teams spend to the cap floor at minimum.

    The NHLPA will allot a further $60 million to revenue sharing: in essence the players are funding the salaries of an entire NHL team.

    The NHL is therefore spending $1.6 billion in the next 8 years to help the bottom clubs. Why don't they just buy up 6 franchises and retiire them - the players would, in turn, save themselves $480 million.

    Yeah, my point was the NHLPA would never go for that - if anything they'll expand to 32 teams within the next few years (the NHL showed their hand on that with the proposed unbalanced divisions.)
