I believe the current system is better for the fans, players and owners than what would result from an open market system.

However for any system to function mutual respect is required, the urge to score a complete victory always secondary to what is good for the game's future.

Pushing the players into what amounts to a capitulate or else scenario will IMO result in an open market NHL.

Personally I don't see the issues separating the two sides as worthy of take it or leave it proposals, when the alternative is one I am sure both sides will regret.

I believe if this continues down the current path to conclusion, the NHL as we have known it will disappear.
