The stubbornness and egos on both sides is what's bringing this down. On core economics, they're $182 million off of each other over the course of the PA's proposed CBA. The NHL turned it down instantly and proceeded to cancel another two weeks of games. Bettman said the NHL is losing $18-$20 million daily with these cancellations. Over two weeks that equals $252-$280 million. I don't understand their thinking. Get rid of the PA's guaranteed share nonsense and split the difference on make whole. Instead, they're going to argue over $1.213 million per team per year and destroy future business to a level that's never done before.
Obviously collective bargaining isn't as simple as I make it out to be but what's going on truly makes no sense.
