Allan Walsh, a player agent in the league, has loudly criticized Gary Bettman for almost every choice he makes. Let's just say he makes it clear that he is not a fan of the league's commissioner.

This time, Walsh utilised the Bo Horvat trade as an opportunity to express his feelings against a cherished Bettman rule that would encourage clubs to trade for specific great players.

"As I've said many times, one of the many flaws in Gary's beloved triple-cap hard cap system is that it forces teams to trade star players because of the lack of cap space that they would never consider trading if there was a soft cap with luxury tax and meaningful revenue sharing." - Allan Walsh




Walsh asserts that his approach would prevent teams from having to move certain players due to a shortage of cap space.

With all of his brilliant ideas, the agent would make a terrific commissioner and the NHL would function flawlessly.
