Forbes is reporting that the owners still aren't profitable. That means the CBA has to be lowered again.
Have fun in Europe
Because of who?
Id be playing and have much better job security, wouldnt I?
The players agreed after nearly a year of not giving in. Conceding on the basis of wanting to play, not necessarily the best deal.
If im a player, how many times do I wanna deal with owners not cutting it financially?
The average NHLer probably deals with one or two restructured CBAs, but its about setting a good precedent for future players.
