Were they not offering 4/5 year deals last month? 8 years vs 10....seems like there is room to compromise.
As long as the owners want to die on the hill of 5 year max contracts we won't be watching NHL action for a while.
I'd love to here that Crosby signed in Europe when I wake up tomorrow - might force the networks to play more CHL/AHL.
The owners have literally not moved an inch from the framework that was the old CBA.
I just want things to blow up at this point. I either hope the NHLPA decertifies and the cap becomes abolished, or sponsors start backing out and the weaker franchises that are the cause of this lockout end up having to fold or relocate. I'm sick of this NHL ******** and I'm baffled how anyone can support them. I get into arguments with people (offline) and the amount of illogic they spew is ridiculous. I just laugh and walk away.
