BTW, if the players dont like the salary cap rules, cant they just go play in some other league?
And btw, your Wal Mart analogy is really quite stupid. If the franchises are healthy, the NHL (Wal Mart) is healthy. Wal Mart is much more akin to the NHL than it is to individual franchises. See, in the real world if Wal mart stores were a franchises, it would be very bad for the franchisor (Wal MArt/NHL)if numerous stores were going down the tubes or losing $$$.
See, its really not all that complicated.
You are right. If the players don't like a cap, then they can take off!

I just can't understand why anyone sides with a player who makes $5 million a year. Like they are going to be so hard done by under a cap. :lol The players will still make tons of cash and the owners will have a league that will work for 30 teams. If the players were being forced to only make $50,000 a year after a cap - and the NHL didn't reduce their ticket prices drastically - then I could see people siding with them. Hell, I would be too! But they will still make millions under a cap or "cost certainty." So let's tell them to suck it up and sign a deal. Boo hoo hoo, Niklas Lidstrom won't make $10 million anymore. Tears are filling my eyes for him. He'll still be a multi-millionaire under a cap! Time to pull up the training diapers, stop the temper tantrums when you don't get what you want, and get on with the season NHLPA!!
