- The salary variance on contracts from year to year cannot vary more than 35 per cent and the final year cannot vary more than 50 per cent of the highest year.
- A player contract term limit for free agents will be seven years and eight years for a team signing its own player.
- Supplemental discipline for players in on-ice incidents will go through NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan first, followed by an appeal process that would go through Bettman. For suspensions of six or more games, a neutral third party will decide if necessary.
Love all of this.
And mostly I love having hockey back. Wonder if they'll paint "Thanks Suckers Fans" on the ice again?
Wow, 15/1 is quite surprising... I don't think I'd take any action on that haha... Lightning at 60/1 isn't bad, they improved in net and if Hedman has a good year those kind of odds are worth it, IMO...
