@NYP_Brooksie Mentioned this last night. Recchi was with NHLPA from 1986-2011, and NOW he speaks up and has all the answers?

Guess Bettman gets the day off as NHLPA and it's messengers demonize Recchi today. These guys NEVER look in the mirror.

Damien Cox ‏@DamoSpin

Maybe instead of attacking Recchi the PA should ask guys like Ference, Stajan and Hamhuis hard questions about how Fehr hijacked the union.

Recchi and Jagr. Two NHL greats that veer to the owners' side of the CBA debate. And, not coincidentally, two owners.

Very disappointed in our old friend Mark Recchi. He's basically telling players to fold. NHL will take this as a sign players will give up.

Mark Recchi believes the CBA offers from owners will only get worse for NHL players? Interesting theory, but demonstrably untrue.
Recchi started at a salary of $105K in 1989. 2 yrs. He got a 662% raise to $800K and 13% more to 900K the next year. Another bump of 72% to $1.55 MM by '93.


100%, 14% and 12% raises to $2.1, 2.45, 2.75 MM consecutively.

64% and 11% raises to $4.5MM then $5 MM for the next five years.


$2.28 x 2 yrs, $1.75, 1.25, 1 and 1 MM to end his career.

Career earnings of $50.94 MM. 72% of those earnings came during the Goodenow led years.

It would appear though that Recchi had to put in a long run of cheap RFA years, then wait to get his 'due' once he became an UFA. Under a capped system and a lower UFA age, that money naturally migrated to younger and better players.
