Cutting payrolls implies that the teams recommenended their key players to look for a kind of rental contracts with other teams (in Sweden, in Switzerland, in Austria). So they did not have to pay them for the remainder of the season.
Julien (Cologne) is an example.
I agree with Zecke that there will be a bing bang in the summer. It just started with Duisburg.
IMHO a DEL with 12 teams and 8 play off spots would be fine.
If the ****ing schedule remains I think about not buying a season ticket for the first time since many years.
