According to Forbes, 13 teams lost money last season. This includes San Jose and Washington, two teams that are always close to the cap ceiling and competing for the cup... I think that is proof enough that something needs to change.

What do you think about revenue sharing in the NHL?

Seems the leafs, Ranger, Habs are basically paying for Suter and Parise to play for Minnesota.

Something needs to change with that.  A team losing money spends 200M,  Their team is barely worth more than the 2 players they just signed.

The NHL overreached it self.
