We have 15 days.

If that does not happen, I wish them well making hundreds of thousands playing in older arenas scattered around Russia, the Czech Republic, Finland, Austria and Sweden, wearing uniforms that look like subway billboards, traveling by bus, staying in Best Western hotels, eating team meals at truckstops, playing against AHL level talent, with no retirement benefits and only insurance that they pay for themselves out of their huge salaries.
Is this the latest proposal from the league? Nah, just kiddin. That is just the unspoken goal.
