The new head of the NHLPA - Buzz Hargrove 
Mike, in a comment to my last post, suggests:
Why don't the lesser paid players take over the union? They could impose a seniority system to ensure equal longeviety of employ and impose a system of equal pay for all members. The only pay related negotiating point becomes the fixed dollars per player. It would make it a real union (no reward for skill or performance). Majority of players should like it. Owners then get a hard cap and level playing field and also managing/scouting/trading would be about talent and not money.
Seems like something that would fit nicely with the autoworkers, no?

Imagine - the solution was staring at us all along.
