I like one of the conditions for signing the 10 year CBA on the behalf of the NHLPA is the minimum salary to grow to 800k during the later parts of it.

How can the NHLPA even have the balls to ask for a minimum salary much, much higher than that of sports that are wildly profitable? Just compare the NHL's tv deal to that of legit sports leagues that have actual seasons and laugh at the notion of NHL players even making close to what the other big sports do, let alone more. That's over 50% increase in minimum wage. For comparison, in the past 7 seasons, the minimum wage has increased 16% in the NHL.

The other big one being the option to opt out of it after 7 years.

I still have a lot of doubt in there being a season when you're at t-minus a week until the season is cancelled and one of the things you want is a fully guaranteed 800k minimum salary 7-8 years from now.

also lol at the players voting again for the right to file the disclaimer. Didn't they just do that and not pursue it a day or two ago when their deadline came and went, yet now they're doing it again already. this **** is hilarious
