Interesting, huh?

Shannon didn’t expand much more regarding exactly how this would work – especially within the framework of a luxury tax – but there was a time when NHL teams could exchange cash in deals.

This idea and a possible “luxury tax” would make for more complicated imaginary trades on message boards and Twitter, too.

(Is that a good thing?)
