McKenzie:rookie$ will take it on the chin

Not really isles related but an interesting article.

But with only a year left on the current collective bargaining agreement, no NHL team, especially the Panthers, intends to dole out a Thornton or Kovalchuk type contract, not when they can wait one year in the anticipation of a true rookie salary cap in the new CBA. No one knows what will transpire, or when, but smart money suggests that entry-level players are going to take it on the chin.
