Really? see below:

Average to above-average TML players have seen salary increases of 300% - 600%. And this has been happening across the NHL.

Why don't you post some players' names whose salaries that have been reduced in 7 years. You can't do that, because there aren't any.

The best players still make the most money - is that news? Have you not seen the frontloaded contracts paying $12m + to the "best players?"

Was Bobby Holik a "best player" 7 years ago hauling in $9m?

What about the fact that average salaries have increased from 1.2m to 2.45m? And all NHL contracts are guaranteed? (unlike the insanely more successful NFL - on both counts) Any love for Gary here??

No, NHLPA members are not working in a coal mine 12 hrs a day, given only 5 holidays a year, a minimal healthplan, and no expenses. They're doing ok... (just trust me on this)
