I am aware of the increase in average salaries.
If that's Kris Versteeg's idea of "looting" on the part of the NHL, then I can't imagine how awful it must be to be looted in such a manner.
I have no idea what Versteeg's comments have to do with him, personally or the players, being "looted" by Daly and/or Bettman. His comments are too vague. I don't even know what he is implying. With the little I saw, I think we're drawing conclusions that may or may not be accurate.
