This whole thing with the league in 2003 and now with another lockout was not a very good decision, that didnt stop them from still doing it and negotiating in bad faith during both lockouts. Whats another 100K thrown in the crapper for these guys. All they care about is making sure they beat down the NHLPA in the CBA negotiations.

Plus 100K is peanuts, thats one crappy entry league salary for an AHL player, and thats split up between 30 teams.
