I don't think it's that generous, because the instant that contract is up, the players invaribly demand a 20-200% pay raise.

I'm also frustrated with the players. It's painfully obvious they don't care one iota about the fans, which is a shame, because these guys owe their careers to us. This is pretty clear because: 1) They understand the problem, and 2) They don't want to do anything about it.

Why should the NHL budge from it's position while the NHLPA is allowed to sit still? If there's no hockey this season, I'm going to put the blame on who deserves it most from me: the players.
