If I'm at the NHLPA and the players have to take a pay-cut, say 15% then all those contracts for term not meeting the new criteria under the negotiated CBA should be declared null and void and I hope both Suter anpd Parise walk and sign somewhere else. It would serve Leopold right for the way he acted this past summer.
Right. Damn those owners for playing by the existing rules and not the as of yet undefined future rules!

Working Arbitrarily below those rules would collusion. Not saying they don't look stupid, but I don't get the outrage.
