Oh yes these poor NHL players with their minimum salaries of $500,000 per. They might have a contract cap of only 5 years. What wretched conditions.

Seriously guys, what's worse, having to take 10% less and shorter contracts or ten teams folding due to the crippling financial burden they can't keep up with? you know how many guys would lose their jobs then? Are these players really this clueless? Yeah, i think some of the owners are slimebags as well, but there is no doubt player salaries have become extremely prohibitive.
