you can say it wass a win for the players last time ,but at the end of the day the Owners got every single thing they asked for. And they promissed they had fixed the system. they shouted out words like economic stability and "sound foundation for the future"
All I can say is you have exactly ZERO idea what happened in 05.


The owners did not get everything they wanted. At all.

Going to stick your "rollback" talk in the face of facts eh? Cool cool.

Neither proposal fixes the system, a combination will (which is you know how negotiations work). But the fact remains NHL has moved on core economic issues from original offer...PA has not still insisting they deserve more raises. Once the PA starts to move it'll be a different story, they have not.
