Other stuff like players getting pension is a bonus for them.

I don't know how NHL got this big bad picture attached to them when they got very little.
I don't think you can downplay going from market value (for UFA's, anyway), to 57%, to 50%. That's huge. Yes, there's make whole for some players for 2 years... then there's 6-8 more at the figure the owners wanted. It's all about where the money goes, and a greater share of it is on its way to the owners. The players lost, as they did last time.

Haha!! Poor man's version of the Stanley Cup!
(they should also give half off for the first month on all the tickets! as a way of saying sorry that we have been screwing with nhl fans, instead of just taking nhl fans' millions of dollars, season after season...and then locking out fans from nhl hockey whenever they feel like it ... half of me is still bitter, the other half is happy that nhl hockey is back...but I'm still bitter... I love nhl hockey but I hate the greedy owners and players...not all of them are greedy but most of them!!).




Silly question (maybe?!)...trade deadline is still in March?! (probably early April...?).
(always exciting!! love it when it's trading time!!).

Thanks for that... I just happened to see something about that in the prospects or trade proposal threads...they were also mentioning April 5th (but with a small question mark).

Anyways...for now it seems like it's April 5th.

Renaud Lavoie‏@RenLavoieRDS

NHL is not currently contemplating preseason games. Camps should start between Saturday and Monday.

You'd think they'd want to play 1-2 exhibitions.

Just a low rumble for now, but there are whispers KHL teams may be offering "inducements" to get RUS stars to stay and not return to NHL.


Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
In last 24 hours, multiple sources told me NHL teams would do well to have roll call because it's possible a RUS player or two may not show.


Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
Two things to keep in mind: 1. Many RUS stars publicly stated earlier this season they might stay the entire the year in the KHL.


Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
2. NHL-KHL have post-Radulov pact to honor contracts. That said, been suggested to me this entire issue could heat up again. We'll see.
I'm not worried about Markov, but anyone think we could lose Emelin?

I'm not worried about Emelin either. I think he really wants to prove himself in the NHL.

I would love to see Ovechkin stay in Russia. His whiny BS would not be missed and his loss would be a short term pain for the Caps that could be salved by the money they would have for free agents this summer. Stay home, Ovie!!

Markov will come back. YAY!!! I believe Emelin will, too. However, if the KHL team he plays for offers stupid cash for him, he might stay at home. I hope we get both of them back. I hope Kovalchuk goes back to NJ as well as most other Russian players, too.

fwiw, Gionta along with Okposo, Stajan, and perhaps Oshie were just about to sign with Västerås in HockeyAllsvenskan when the lockout ended.

That reminds me. I need to buy a new Habs T-shirt because Kostitsyn and Cammalleri are no longer on the team. Damn.

I even had a D'agostini shirt. Wow I'm on a role. Better not get a Galchenyuk, Price, Subban or Pacioretty one.
