Now that my bidding thread is out of the way, I thought I'd discuss something that I think would be incredibly vital for this league to add. JClaus constantly goes for salaries that hold his teams down tremendously, no matter the succes they achieve and the hurdles they climb - he'll probably never have a chance at winning a cup when you have to rely on 500k armies to play around him. I think it'd be smart for the league to make a ruling on players such as Claus. I'm going to breakdown the method to my madness in 3 simple steps. 1) Player X tells the league he thinks he'll go for above 10mil. 2) The league contacts all 31 owners and has a vote. if more than 50% think player x will go for over 10mil, they make a decision. 3) Player x is now thrown in to a draft lottery, with every team having the same % chance of getting him. A team wins him and has the choice of keeping him, trading him or skipping entirely on him if they don't wish to have him on there team, which would lead to the draft lottery having a second go around. Player X is now 10mil salary on the dot for whatever team wins him. I think this would be very beneficial to the competitiveness of the league and someone like JClaus would undoubtedly take up this offer. You can't compare his salary to anyone's or to the current NHL. He is legit almost half his teams full salary and has been for the past few seasons. Its time we make a change and stop punishing him by adding a cap max if a player would like one. Thoughts?
