The players want a "make whole deal", they want the money they signed for. Who wouldn't? Weber signs for 13 years, Parise, Suter, Kovalchuk, Crosby.. the list goes on of recent long term deals. These guys JUST SIGNED LT CONTRACTS so by cutting their salaries the owners are screwing them bigtime!!

My idea: 50-50 split in HRR But contracts that exceed the expiration period of this CBA (contracts 5 years or more, whatever the CBA term is) do NOT get rolled back. I mean c'mon. Why the hell would anyone do that? I sign a 13 year contract and for the next 13 years I have to give up 10%? No one would do that. If the contract is 2-3 years, you suck it up.

So if a team has a player like Weber, signed past the 5 years of the CBA, they get a certain allowance to go over the salary-cap. I have not done the math and just thinking about it seems complex, plus I am not getting paid for this so I will not do it lol, but to me it seems fair for players with LT contracts and owners.


Do you hear that? 3.3 Billion dollars getting flushed down the toilet.
