Now they are proposing arbitration be pushed back another year. Those teams knew what the NHL was proposing and they ignored it. Now we hear Gary and Bill discuss how important the contract system issues are to the teams. 5 year term limits. Free agency at 8 or 28. Salary arbitration after 5 years. The NHL already has the most restrictive system in pro sports and teams ignored the tools given to them. What is an extra season going to do?
huh? the nhl has the most restrictive system in sports? ever look at the NBA?
