Couldn't agree more. Just liek the crap they're spewing about the NHLPA proposal from last week. They have their legion of reports saying that only 3 teams would pay the luxury tax and it would amount to just $1.6 million.

That's wahat would be paid today, they conveniently neglected to mention that fact that most teams still need to sign an average of at least 5 players before a season would start. Most teams have just 16-19 players under contract. Once those additional lpayers are signed (most of them quality, big money players) alot mor teams would be paying the luxury tax.

It's all a complete friggen joke.
