I don't think they're talking out of both sides...

a cap and limits on rookie compensation are two different things. There is a limit (or at least I thought there was) on rookie compensation as it is. Of course there's ways around it, the owners have found.

And cost-certainty is a cap. No ifs ands or buts about it. It's the spin word the league has chosen to stay away from the word, 'cap'.

I do still get a chuckle that the owners back this 'cap' to stop themselves from spending money. Poor poor MSG. Couldn't help themselves but to spend money.

And that can't happen, 007. This is all about posturing and positioning. Each is just waiting for the other to cave-in. Sitting in a room would just waste their time. Hey, wait, might as well. They're the only ones still getting paid, I assum. Bettman, Goodenow, and co. Let 'em sit in a room with each other for weeks and rot.
