As for the NBA comparison. They use percentages and generally equal money when they are over or near the soft cap. Then salaries must be close. We do not have a soft cap, so the comparison doesn't work. If you are under the cap (which everyone in this league is) then there should be no restriction on trading.
Agreed. That is how the league was originally devised, right? Teams under the soft cap had no restrictions for salary whereas teams over the soft cap had to match salary. If we have no soft cap, that rule should no longer apply. We can and almost certainly should revise that rule to reflect the lack of a soft cap, no?
It might come down to whether we want to mimic the NBA or not. On the one hand, forcing to match salaries is a unique twist in making deals you don't find in many leagues and can be rewarding to GMs who manager salaries well. Plus it does mimic the role of GM in the nba.
On the other hand, it does make it more difficult to make a deal and might not be worth it. What I liked about Kal was that above all, he wanted a fun league that everyone liked, and not just a league that mimicked the NBA at all costs.
I like the matching salary, personally. Not sure how to handle picks, though.
