Uhh.. what?

This is procedure when negotiating a new CBA. Otherwise the CBA stays in effect for another year.

YEs they did need to but neither side has even started to respond if reports are true both sides are being standoffish about it which never bodes well for us the fans. With Fehr in place I have been predicting a lockout since his announcement as head of the NHLPA and I am not alone in that thinking.

That is my best guess also. What is funny is I remember reading the PA saying they werent ready to do anything till after the season was completed and yet Buttman goes and files. To me that is asking for problems especially with Fehr running the PA now.

Agreed.

All of this junk gets very tiring. Almost everyone involved in the NHL gets very well compensated for what they do.

Hopefully the NHL comes to their senses and this doesn't last too far into the Summer.

AND hopefully when the new CBA comes in there is some sort of amnesty buy out clause

The filing was made to meet a deadline. The PA defering to the end of the season is guaranteeing status quo, which appears to be what they want.

Well I'd rather we get a lottery pick again due to a lockout than due to actually being terrible two years in a row.

Assuredly. They won't rest until they have a team entirely made up of players they drafted 1st overall led by 40 years old Taylor Hall (AKA ''The first of many'').

I strongly doubt there's a lockout. Why would there be anyways?? Both sides seem happy and neither is whining about how the other is making a lot more.

The cap is due to increase to something like $69 million (per discussion on NHL radio today) and the NHLPA had the option of kicking in a clause to add an additional 5% to the cap to extend the CBA a year. Obviously they're looking for more than that. Don Fehr effectively killed small market teams (and the Expos in 1994) from having a fair chance of ever winning another World Series. He won't be satisfied until a team like the Rangers or Leafs can spend $100 million in salaries a year.

Vaguely remember Bob MacKenzie commenting that teams shouldn't plan on an amnesty bail-out. Believe his source for that recommendation was Fehr.

But when it comes to negotiations there is much posturing and maybe he let that out there to make it seem a win to owners when he was going to concede that all-along.

Who knows what will be left on the table when the dust settles.

Very possible. By CBA rules the cap must be readjusted in June for the upcoming season, and it is expected to rise to as much as $70M based on the current formula.

Meanwhile the league will be negotiating a new CBA with the objective of changing the formula to reduce the players portion of league revenues. This could result in a cap that's as low as $60M.

So, teams will enter the free agent season spending up to a $70M cap and possibly entering the season at a $60M cap, meaning some will have to shed as much as $10M.

In that situation the league would have to lend assistance to teams but allowing for one time compliance buyouts.

This is a problem created by the fact that the expiry date of the CBA does not coincide with the end of a hockey season, but rather it expires in mid September well after free agent season.

Or roll back salaries like they did during the last lockout..

Why do some think a lockout is far fetched? Fehr is the PA's Bettman and doesn't back down from pressure if its not "right" for his party, the simple fact that the NHL doesn't want to roll over the CBA while negotiating a new tells that there are changes coming to put more money back into the pockets of the owners and you know the PA will see this as a reason to want more money in their own pockets, there are 2 very stubburn men "leading" the 2 sides.
