are you in some way related to an owner?
The question is whether a disclaim and subsequent decert is a true breakup of the union or a bargaining move. nhl trying to classify it as a ploy (which it pretty much is until the season is lost). As the PA hasn't actually disclaimed, and only been authorized to by the players, its all theoretical at this point.

I have no problem saying I'm in favor of the owners side of things. I think the owners should get at least 52/48 and I think their original "make whole" was fair enough. I feel the owners could be sharing even more than their 200mil offer though, especially at 52/48%. The Toronto teachers union would have a big no on that though. I also feel that 5 years (7 years if same team) and 5% deviation might be too little. I'd personally go with 6/8 years and 10% deviation. That allows for a little bit more wiggle room for teams that are close to the cap. 10 year CBA is better for the fans so I'm all for that. And if they could put in a no raise in seat prices clause for the Kings during the entire cba I'd be all over that too. So there's my pro-owner stance. I could post all your owner attacks to put mine in context but everyone here has already been inundated with enough of your player-love posts to want to see them again.
