Since we are agreeing to make Y amount of money in the new deal we are losing out on Z amount because you could have made X.

Except the last CBA ended and with the lockout HRR will decline so X was never going to be reached. They did it last time too.

It's not actual money. With this lockout and new CBA not a single player will have to reach into his wallet and give a single dollar back to the NHL. So people need to stop saying the players are giving up billions because they aren't.
Exactly. Ironically it has been Fehrs ploy to bring that up at every opportunity in his spin. It works obviously. The naive and greedy players are buying into it; the notion that they are giving away money, even though the CBA expired.
