Its worthless because it doesnt give the owners the cost certainty that they want.
The most important term in cost certainty is CERTAIN. Wouldnt you want to make SURE that the next agreement didnt cost you 1.8bb again because you thought it MIGHT work. No, they want to be CERTAIN. So basically and unfortunately for the players, a weaker NHL only hurts them. Because when the owners get their CERTAIN system, no matter how long it takes, they will make money no matter how low the revenues are. The players, on the other hand, will take the brunt of the lower revenues, dollar for dollar. Thats why the owners don't care how long it takes. The players are thowing away alot of money in a foolish attempt. They will never recoup their losses this year.
