In what universe does your quoted comment have any relevance other than some weak attempt at slander towards the owners?
ummm wasn't it something like this tho
The CBA is six years in duration (through the 2010-11 season) with the NHLPA having the option to re-open the agreement after Year Four (after the 2008-09 season). The NHLPA also has the option of extending the CBA for an additional year at the end of the term.
in this case NHLPA could have axed it last year but they chose not to, owners i think were pissed because it meant another year of players getting a raise.
