Reminder: The NHLPA were the ones who refused to start negotiations until after the season,
"Gary Bettman had stressed, from the All-Star break on, that the league was ready to begin talks as soon as Donald Fehr and the NHLPA were ready. The union reasoned that it still time needed to organize, and that players were busy with the season and playoffs."
"Bettman suggested that the union has been “delaying” in hope of somehow keeping something close to the expiring CBA. Bettman said the league wanted to begin negotiations last summer, but the players kept putting the talks off until late June."
It's the PA, now that that is settled, it is FACT the PA made no official counter offer since their initial proposal. So as of now they have made ZERO realistic proposals.
In 6 years maybe half are and how many clubs are making significantly less, how many aren't making any money at all? Hint, the number is far greater than the small handful of clubs making 50 million.
NHL players are NOTHING special and don't deserve ANYTHING. They play a sport for a living and many are multimillionaires and will be set for life.
As I've sad 5 year contract limits only hurt superstars who are set anyway.
