    Bwahahahahahahahaha
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Any G.M. who does this **** needs to be drawn and quartered. I don't think even Bettman will let this go

    How could Bettman stop it? He can be paid up to $15m under the existing CBA...

    If you can in fact be paid up to 15 million dollars a season per the current CBA, how come no player has asked for that much yet? That's crazy talk in the cap era. Even Crosby, the three-time Stanley Cup winning Conn Smythe winning darling of the NHL makes 10.9 million USD.

    I'd be just as happy if all the GM's colluded and agreed that no player will make over 11 million, that is unless the entire NHL miraculously gets out of the basement and into the big three Sports and the cap goes up significantly.

    Hockey players have to face it-- they're never going to be paid as well as baseball basketball or football players, they just don't draw the same amount of coverage money or demand to justify that $$$.

    Ehehehehehe.

    Lockout, welcome!

    When will the NHLPA realize that such numbers are ridiculous and detrimental to the sport?

    Well it doesn't matter under the cap. Nhlpa just needs to push against their share of revenue as defined. There's never been a Max cap contract but that doesn't mean there can't be one.

    I agree with what you're saying, but Crosby was signed prior to the new CBA, so he's on a 12-year, vs. a Max 8 that's allowed now, so he still a contract worth more than $100m.

    But to your point, he absolutely gave a hometown discount, and it allowed his team to be competitive. Possible dynasty there (though I still think, for the sake of his health and family, he'd be better off retiring now)

    If only other captains, perhaps one in the South Bay, would have been wise enough to consider NOT strangling his team with his contract.
