As usual, the owners are pleading for relief from high players' salaries. Maybe they s
should start the process of negotiating a new CBA by looking in the mirror:

Quote:
The Wild was not formerly a player in most discussions involving 13-year, $98 million contracts, but they now have twin ones. Only a few months ago, the Wild owner Craig Leipold told The Minneapolis Star-Tribune: “We’re not making money, and that’s one reason we need to fix our system. We need to fix how much we’re spending right now.”
And no doubt that's why the Wild signed not one, but two players to outrageous contracts.
