NHLPA - What are you offering us to get us to agree to that?

NHL - In addition to the reduction in the slice of the pie, we also want to cap contract terms at 5 years

NHLPA - What are you offering us to get us to agree to that?

NHL - We also want to eliminate the arbitration process, shorten ELC's from three to two years and push out UFA status from 27 years old or 7 years service to 28 years and 8 years of service

So my question to the pro owner crowd is, What IS the NHL offering in any of their proposals in terms of any sort of give-back to induce them to agreeing to a deal?

What are the owners suppose to do hire psychics so they know what the players would like. The only thing the players have wanted is to remove linkage and that is a non-starter as far as the NHL is concerned (and since we lost a year to get it I have to agree).

As for what the players get, they finally get to play in a healthy NHL, they would have had an average salary 2.4 million that likley would have grown to a 3.4 million average.

Ps most times when a business is not anywhere near as profitable as it needs to be the labour negotiations are decidedly one sided.
