Puck Daddy summarizing positions, rhetoric
So, in summary: The NHL thinks it gave the players too much of the League's revenue seven years ago, it wants to take it back and it wants to make sure that its 30 franchise owners can't completely [expletive] themselves again with loophole-laden monster contracts and spend-to-the-cap salaries by installing yet more fail-safes into the system.
(Which, one imagines, the owners will simply circumvent again if it means gaining a competitive advantage over each other.)
Meanwhile, the players are left wondering how mismanagement (on and off the ice) in places like Phoenix, New Jersey, Long Island and Columbus can be remedied by their giving up 24 percent of their salary under the NHL's proposal.
