MacLean brought some very good points to the table. The players are still making boatloads of money despite "losing" the last CBA negotiations. And no matter where they settle at this time around, the players will still be making boatloads of money.

The NHL doesn't want to acknowledge current contracts signed on the old CBA. That is the big problem.

They want players to roll over again, and have their negotiated salaries squeezed again.

Nobody disagrees that professional athletes make HUGE money, but the principal is...don't spend what you can't afford and honour the contracts you signed. That is all.
