I agree 100%. The CBA needs to be improved.It's not just a matter of who's at fault. The fact is that many teams are struggling. Most of the increase in revenue has been from a handful of teams in hockey mad markets. Can you honestly say that just because the league got the salary cap it wanted means that there aren't things that can be improved upon in the new CBA?
I'm not pro player or pro owners. I'm just trying to point out that this isn't a simply black or white issue, it's a whole lot of grey. These are NEGOTIATIONS. Both sides will have to give to get.
Unsurprisingly, Bob McKenzie has written a great article on the situation. Fear, loathing and 'I can't believe we're doing this again'
