READ THIS : it's not an OPINION, it's a FACT
Owners want a HARD CAP
Players want to help but not by saying yes to a hard CAP
RESULTS : Owners will do a LOCKOUT
RESULTS : You won't see HOCKEY this year because of the OWNERS.
But I'm not talking about you or your girlfriend, unless you're both members of the NHLPA. I'm talking about the NHL.
I can make up my own facts too:
Players want salaries to stay where they are, and, of course, rise in the future.
Owners want to pay them very generous salaries, and already have been doing so for years.
Owners will lock the players out.
You won't see hockey because of the players.
See? It goes both ways.
If the players are so serious, and if they really want to help, they'll accept a deal where salaries are tied to revenues. Why wouldn't they? What are they afraid of?
It's because they don't want to be paid what they're worth - they want more than that, obviously.
