There is far more *****ing and complaining to be done by both sides before there can be a deal.

My only hope is this is the start of negotiations.

No, just because I think that Bettman will come to the table with a cap.

Because he "doesn't believe in luxury taxes."

Sadly no.

However I think that there are quite a few owners/GMs that love the NHLPA offer, however Bettman is representing the interests of all owners...not just certain ones. I believe it was Bob McKenzie this morning on TSN that siad he figured teams like Toronto, Detroit, New Jersey, as well as Nashville, Columbus and teams from that end of the spectrum were likely in favour of the deal. Glen Healy made a fantastic point to Burke in their discussions immediately following the lockout as well, if Burke could make $24,000,000 for the Canucks under the old CBA, why would teams be unable to operate under the NHLPA offer. I think it's clear the NHL does not want to have to be fiscally responsible, and would much rather simply say "sorry, the league won't let me pay you that." rather than being able to spend.

Don't get me wrong, I don't believe the players offer did hit all the points it needed to if they intended to blow the owners away, and start a season 45 days from Thursday, but the owners definitely COULD work under that CBA, and make money.

What's there to love? If owners want to go out and get that player and they have the money, they will.

It won't help the small market teams one bit.

Not the season, no. But maybe the long term existance of the NHL.

Stick to your guns, Gary. Get those greedy owners a cap. Save the sport that, admittedly, you helped screw up... but save it anyways.
