***NHL season on the brink***

Once again a small group meeting, no Buttman, no Goodenow, not even Linden and Hotchkiss.

link - Slam.ca

NY Post reporter Larry Brooks proposed to let the players vote for a cap ---> link.
I'm wondering if this could be a good idea or not...but, why not? I'd be curious to see the results...

New NHL proposal

1. A term of six (6) full seasons (through 2010-11), with a unilateral right granted in favor of the Union to reopen the Agreement after the fourth full season;

2. A League-wide Player Compensation Range, which again increases the League's offer on maximum Player Compensation from 54% to 55% of League-wide Revenues and guarantees that Players will receive a minimum payment of 53% of League-wide Revenues;

3. A Floating Team Payroll Range, which would obligate each Club to pay its Players no less than $32 million and no more than $42 million in Player Compensation on an annualized basis. The Payroll Range would be adjusted every year to reflect changes in League-wide Revenues;

4. The maintenance of Player Contract "Guarantees" in their current form;

5. A profit-sharing plan pursuant to which the Players would share in League profitability over a negotiated level on a 50/50 basis;

6. The implementation of a jointly monitored accounting and audit function, with multi-million dollar fines -- and forfeited Draft choices -- the penalty for failure to disclose required financial information;

7. The establishment of a Joint Owner-Player Council to discuss various business and game-related issues;

8. Recognizing a shortened regular season with a full Playoff, a distribution of revenues generated from the 2005 Stanley Cup Playoffs to ensure that the Players receive the agreed-upon 53% of League Revenues;

9. A revised Entry Level System which preserves each Player's ability to negotiate performance bonuses and which incorporates an additional League-wide bonus structure for outstanding performance on a League-wide basis;

10. A revised Salary Arbitration System with expanded election rights for both Players and Clubs;

11. A proposed reduction in the age for Unrestricted Free Agency to age 30, with a possible further reduction to age 28 (tied to salary arbitration);

12. A 62% increase in the League's Minimum Salary to $300,000 per year; and

13. The use of a Payroll Tax on Clubs within the Floating Team Payroll Range at the Union's sole discretion.
Entire proposal

The proposal has been rejected.

Man...what a HUGE surprise...Y-A-W-N...
Another meeting tomorrow, with Gary & Bob joining the show.

As TwzKing, I almost don't care anymore too.

Dont kid yourselves guys.. If you didn't care you wouldn't be posting the CBA Information on the Kings board, or even posting on HF for that matter.

Exactly

And for those who "don't care" This season getting cancelled also means no hockey at the beginning of next season and the same thing happening at this time next year


The opitimistic side of me says the players ask for the UFA age to be lowered and one or two other concessions and accept tomorrow.

We should all stop paying attention to this lockout garbage. Then maybe the parties will realize life goes one without them. Enough of the 24-7 coverage on TSN.

Of course I do care about the CBA, I miss the Kings a lot. But I'm getting sick of this neverending comedy between the NHL and the NHLPA, I still keep a little hope, but it's fading quickly. If there's not going to be a season, I'll just turn my attention to the playoff here in Italy and in Switzerland and I'll go to watch a few games. And there are also the Monarchs. And Pushkarev. And our college prospects.

Heck, I love hockey, I'll find a way to keep myself busy watching something.

I'll freely admit I'm pretty solidly on the owner's side in this. This is probably the best quote I've seen:

Quote:
The all-time minor league goal-scoring leader is not impressed with NHLers who sign to play in the United Hockey Leauge.
''The hypocrisy of it is unbelievable,'' Kevin Kerr told the Detroit Free Press. ''They don't want a salary cap, but they'll come to a league that has a salary cap and take someone else's job.''
Locked out Detroit Red Wings Derian Hatcher, Chris Chelios and Kris Draper have all agreed to join the Motor City Mechanics of the UHL this season.
Full story (although this quote is most of it) here:

I love it... Players calling other players out. I can just hear the pillars of player unity cracking like the stansions at Candlestick Park during the '89 World Series.

Still no updates from yesterday's talks. It looks like the talks will continue today - link

Friday 4th February is the D-Day. Or they find an agreement today or the season will be officially lost.
