Settlement is expected to come by Wednesday


2 interesting things, one of which I dont think I have seen before.

No player can earn more than 20 percent of his team's salary cap.
I dont remember seeing the above part mentioned.

Players will deposit a yet-to-be determined percentage of their salaries into escrow at the start of the season. Either the teams or the players will get money back at the end of the season, when the season's revenue is determined.

The deal appears to contain everything the owners wanted from the start, and the players are beginning to criticize the union leadership. Last week, Los Angeles Kings center Sean Avery said that NHLPA boss Bob Goodenow "brainwashed" the membership.

During the weekend, Detroit goalie Manny Legace said Goodenow should have struck a deal that saved the season.

"We lost a season for no reason,'' Legace told the Associated Press. "We should've crumbled last September when the owners wanted a salary cap.

"It makes no sense what we ended up doing.''
