Biggest problem with CBA?

My biggest problem with this new CBA deal is that it will most likely cost teams young players because teams in Europe can offer them more cash. For example a team in Sweden can offer Steen something like 4.5 million bucks a year and depending on our situation we won't be able to afford it. It may have already happened in Pittsburgh with Malkin....

I'm not an expert on European leagues, but I doubt anyone in Sweden will be offering Steen 4.5 million bucks. In any case, he's said he wants to come over this year.

From a purely non-biased fan point of view. I dislike hand-outs, teams should need to hit certain attendance marks, or something to get revenue sharing. There's no garauntee the teams (that we know of) will put revenue money back into the team.

From a Leafs fan point of view: Salary's are capped, we won't see ticket prices drop. We sell-out every game, have die-hard fans around the world and are probably top in apperal, but it won't translate into something we can use, other than momentum. We, and other big market teams, will basically be penalized for using the old CBA in the last NHL season, which shouldn't be. Teams opted to tank their last season, that shouldn't be rewarded.

I don't think it will have that much of an impact on the game or the players we have over here now. Sure some will go home but I don't think the euro leagues are going to be flooded with all out top talents. I seriously doubt that those leagues are that rich or imo there would be a hell of alot more NHL players over there mid way through the strike.

I agree 100% Eazy.. There is no way a team that is leeching off the backs of other teams around the league should be allowed to continue to operate at a - cost. its bad business and I am sure the league has discussed this. If the league was smart and well we all know what there like they would give teams like Florida 2-3 years to get them selves out of the red financially and meet a standard league attendance base per season. Same can be said for San Jose who god knows how lost money even while going pat the 1st round of the playoffs.... All the more fact I support dissolving these teams and dispersing the talent among the league. I think the leagues new system will work *Revenue sharing* if and when these teams that are just feeding off the system are gone. but I also think they deserve a chance to try and turn things around and 2-3 years should be long enough.

I agree. Whatever this CBA does or does not do for hockey, it has taken far to long to be completed. The NHL and PA should have treated the new CBA like a rectal exam...get it over with quickly as possible.

I agree. This CBA basically rewards teams that don't get support on the backs of teams that do. You put only 10,000 people in your arena, you get a check every year.

I don't know, I think I might put off a rectal exam for as long as possible.
