Oy! Eh? What is wrong with these people. Sounded like they were getting close, then bam, its over.

Players are losing tons of money that they will never recover. Many owners are actually making money (i.e. not losing money). Others who make money at hockey don't need it, Seems to me the owners have that advantage.

8 year term seems reasonable for a CBA but 10 is better.

Contract length of 5 seems good and the front loaded deals have to go away.

In round numbers 300 out of 383 is 75% so that means that the hit to the players is significantly less than originally proposed.

I don't get it. Seems to me that superstar deals are the big stumbling block in many ways. I'm sure all the 3rd and 4th liners are all for not doing the deal if they can't possibly get a 10 year deal.

This all sucks; I'm pretty much in the owners camp at this point and I don't think there will be a season this year. Next year? Who knows?
