What do you think happens when we have 5 year contracts?

When owners can no longer exchange Salary for security, and all they can compete with is salary, what do you think happens to the $2 and $3M NHLer?

They become $1 and $2M Nhlers so you can afford the big names.

Besides, while there are similar principals with the PA and a regular union, they are not the same beast.

In any union I've ever belonged to, it was basically equal pay for equal work + seniority raises.

You didn't have one guy earning $16 an hour and another $320 an hour.
