This is rubbish. The franchisees of McDonalds all pay basically minimum wage. The franchisees of the NHL are no different (slightly higher pay scale though). Why can one be subjected to "holding back" salaries but the other isn't? Just like ticket prices where the cost is set by what people are willing to pay. The cost of players to the owners should be what they are willing to pay as well then.

I'm a Teamster that works at UPS. A 20 year driver makes the same as a 5 year regardless of who delivers the most packages. Almost every other labor union does it the same way. Which is another thing that pisses me off. Our CBA is set to expire 7/13. Negotiations have been going on for over a year already. The NHL and NHLPA dragged their feet and this is the result.
