Im hoping Fehr mentions taking the cap off the table. it will save the stall time to the NHL filing the paperwork to remove the PA, re-structure the league, and move on without a union as the first centrally controlled and centrally contracting major league sports teams.

It will also be faster to exponential increases in franchise values.

I got a bottle set aside to toast the NHL when they announce they re-brand and dissolve contrtacts and move forward with no guaranteed contracts. Dont like the NHL? play in siberia lol.
Having a union protects the sports leagues from tons of potential litigation. They might want the unions to behave better, but make no mistake the leagues also want a union. It keeps them from antitrust monopoly status.
