If NHL players ruled the league like NBA players do in the association, what super teams or players do you think would want to team up?

Every player would go to teams that have 0 taxes. It would make sense. A team like Tampa would interest alot of players due to no taxes and the beautiful weather.

even if the nhl had the same salary cap and contract structures as the nba, it's a lot harder to put together a super team. usually 2 or 3 guys can decide the fate of an nba team

regardless, original 6 teams and the california teams would probably dominate the nhl.

Nobody would want to play for California in NHL smile... They would all be places without tax rates like Dallas Stars, Florida Panthers, Tampa, Vegas Knights, maybe some high profile teams or so too smile...

not sure about your rational for no one wanting to play in california. most of the california nba teams will be powerhouses next year.

Ummm Sacramento Kings have a lot of super teams winning Championships?? Clippers have a lot of Championships with all these super teams? Without being rude like many on here... There is a lot of prestige to play for the Lakers back in the day... Kings, Ducks, Sharks, maybe when Kings first went Silver/Black everybody was wearing the jerseys/rappers etc... Its a lot easier to play in NBA making like 30 million a year or whatever the insane salary is... They get contracts for hundreds of millions then more money advertising... So playing for a NBA team that has a lot of prestige is a big difference over the location... Lakers only California team I can think of winning anything or that had any real profile players that is gone now...

Maybe some would play for teams like Rangers, Maple Leafs, Montreal, basically the original 6 or high profile teams... That would equate to how they do it in NBA for teams that had a lot of it... I think Boston Celtics back in the Larry Bird days... Who is really going to shell out big bucks for somebody advertising who plays for Disney Ducks or Sharks who never won anything smile? Kings are in LA so maybe that would seem like a place to be but they lack the high profile prestige... Not many if any like the Kings or care about any of the California teams as a total fan base... MOst of them are front runners if they even show up to the games that they leave early for wink.

i said powerhouses next year. warriors, clippers and lakers will be contenders next year. how were the warriors able to field a super team for 5 years when the organization previously had 1 championship (from the 60s on, not considering the philadelphia years) or "prestige" (they had 5 playoff wins between 1992 and 2012)?
