CBA Trivia

OK, my old boss is good friends with Don LaGreca (don't know how to spell it) and we were talking about the CBA and the Rangers this afternoon and I learned something interesting.

In 1992 71% of the NHLs gross earnings were spent on players salaries. Guess what it is today....

217%!!! Forget marketing, advertising, leasing arenas, management etc. Thats just players salaries. When he asked me I said high 90's, but 217%!?!? That is unreal. The NHL needs to fold 5-6 teams and institue some sort of financial responsibility. I'm not sure a hard cap would work but NO business can be run like this!
