NHLPA's legal strategy could backfire - sportsnet.ca
I hope you are right.
but as long as revenues are so concentrated, owners will continue to try to lower player costs to make money. leading to labor strife.
It's just not a stable situation.
Good news is, we're champs for 2 year's!!!!!!
Bad news is we only get one banner and it takes twice as long to raise...
The NHL has been the worst run sport for quite a long time now.....this does not surprise me in the least and called the season lost before it started. Bettman and the owner going to battle with Fehr had disaster written all over it. What kills me....is how great would have the regular season games against the Yotes, the Blues, and the Nucks have been? That would have been come very compelling hockey to watch. But the NHL loves to shoot itself in the foot over and over again. I said it before and I will say it again....the NHL should hire Dana White....thats a man who knows how to market his sport. He may be a douche...but the UFC on fox got higher ratings than the NHL ever did.

I would imagine that it is like your kid coming to you on their 16th birthday and requesting you buy them a BMW. You might entertain the idea for a second or two before you bust up laughing.
Good. I hope they get hurt like MLB did. Learn to grow the pie, not fight over a hot pocket.
