NOBODY should ever forget this ,were getting so close IMHO
NHLPA executive director
Donald Fehr repeated his doomsday threat that the players could take the salary cap off the table depending on how long the NHL lockout drags out.
It's not a new public threat. It was raised in New York Sept. 13, when talks between the two sides first broke off after a day of bargaining and then a day of the two sides meeting separately to assess their positions.
It's apparently an option he raised numerous times over the course of the summer with the owners before it became a public talking point a month ago.
When asked then if the players would reconsider playing under a salary cap after the NHLPA meeting broke up that day in New York, Fehr replied: "What I have said before and the only thing I am prepared to say now is that if we get past that point, then the players are as free to reconsider their positions as the owners. That's all I can say."
