OR to keep him, you have to cut other productive workers and let your competitor have them.

bye bye employee and you cant do a thing about it, even if you wanted to.

sounds fair doesnt it ... note sarcasm.

Demented, are you a player or a players spouse or parent? Every successful business works with some form of cap or idea of how much money is allotted to employee salaries. Get real. Hockey players and more specifically Bob Goodenow need to wake up and smell the coffee. Fans no longer want to pay and support players at outrageous salaries and FANS want and need lower or stable ticket prices. The Leafs are notorious for raising ticket prices every single year to the point where you have to mortgage the house to go see a game with your family.
