Our hearts are seriously supposed to bleed when a crap franchise like Florida has to sign Ed Jovanovski for $5.7 million per year or the Phoenix Coyotes can't afford Shane Doan?
: those franchises shouldn't exist. Just look at the Minnesota Wild - lost their team to the Dallas Stars, a hotbed of hockey dontchyaknow - but were able to sign Ryan Suter and Zach Parise this offseason.
If the NHL wants to lower the salary cap floor well that would make a lot of sense but that isn't the centerpiece of their negotiations for this third CBA with a lockout, now is it?
How about revenue sharing, the owners seem pretty keen on getting that set up anytime soon?
So YES, let's rip on the players for holding a gun to the heads of the owners to get the last two lockouts solved.
I guess you are missing the part where my heart doesn't bleed for either side. Hence why I find it funny that guys that make 700 dollars per day on average are really doing this. Cry me a river on either side.
All the while we care about the fans, that was the funny part about it for me and accurate. Both sides claim this but they don't give a rats ***. Glad they have hoodwinked you into taking a side though.
If it wasn't funny for you, oh well, didn't know I needed your approval to go on with my daily life or post around here. A lot of people find different things interesting, thought this summed up how I feel about the players right now. If they did one of these and said billionaires that own novelty items that don't produce money, need people to sit around until they come up with a new solution that probably won't produce money, I would laugh at that as well. Both sides are screwed up, but I think the owners will eventually win. I also won't claim that I won't be right back watching. Why fake empty threats or get riled up over something I have no control over?
