    I really enjoyed your idea about trying new things and developing prospects in European leagues. It’s a system that’s used extensively in European Football, the use of feeder/affiliate teams. In addition to the two points you mentioned, there are additional benefits of being able to extensively scout certain leagues for unsigned free-agents too. Obviously, football clubs have massive budgets that most hockey owners and enterprises likely won’t be able to compete with, so funding may or may not be an issue, but the idea is intriguing and the benefits plenty.

    In a cap system, teams should be doing every little thing to exploit every advantage they can get, because they certainly won’t be able to out-spend anyone.
