In contrast, the owners collectively agree that they are paying the players too much in salary. Players don't want to take any sort or pay cut or deferment. The issue is money spent on salaries so some people will look at their current salaries and the PA's proposal for future salaries as the premise in determining how reasonable or unreasonable they feel the PA is being with their demands. If the owners were fine with paying the salaries that they currently pay, how many people do you think would care? NONE.
the nhl owners are giving out those big contracts to the players. they let the players determine how much the players make,( bidding war for the players) but if the owners said to crosby 5mil a year you chose the team, and so on, when the player is ufa.
