Or try and convince the NHL owners that they can be a $7 billion industry. No way will the owners get away from a cap because they are never going to be as big as the NFL/NBA/MLB in the US.
It just seems silly that the players are willing to lose real money
hurt future HRR over a possible $550 million loss over 6 years. If the league continues to grow as fast as the NHLPA thinks, they will be making even more money in a couple of years.
Instead they want to "win" the negotiations. The owners will happily pay 57% of $0 this season. Then propose the same deal that they just offered last week.
