Paperwork and specific #'s are a non issue once the main negotiators come to an agreement. They will have legions of number crunchers and lawyers to dot the I's and cross the T's. Of course those who sign the pay-checks get more of their wants, but that's pretty much how life goes.
These *******s shouldn't have waited until freaking August to start negotiations. I'm sorry but players who want a season next year shouldn't have taken time off. Same with the NHL and the PA
