In response to SanDogBrewin's comment:
Am i too cynical to thinkt he NHL PR company is "stuffing the ballots" to demonize the players ?
No there is always finger pointing and blaming to go round in every labor bargaining.
Or do the fans up there want hockey so badly that they just want the players to cave so that the game comes back ?
Leaf and Hab fans will play both sides at any cost to frame their argument. TSN comment section is mostly made up of Le Shabitot and Laff fans
Or is everyone in canada a small busness owner who thinks that the NHL business is the same as the business they own?
From reading TSN comment section allot for a laugh, I would say less than 1/2 a % know anything about running even a lemonade stand.
" the overall tenor is take whatever management is offering because you are making more than you deserve and the owners have a right to pay you whatever they want and if you dont like it pick a different career. "
The Owners forced the CAP down the players throats and now want the 57% HRR back with players liking it, to be grateful. FAT CHANCE enter Donald Fehr!
" Players have two interests here,â Fehr said. âInterest No. 1 is how big the share is and thatâs not agreed upon yet either, but the parties have at least moved on that. The second one is how does an individual player negotiate his piece of the pie? [The] answer is players will have vastly fewer rights, vastly less leverage for vastly longer portion of their career under the NHL proposal. "
"â¦ The provision that says there canât be significant variability to what a player makes between one year and the next in a contract â¦ really cuts down the number of teams you can talk to and a number of other things, "
The owners will cut back on their demands of years to UFA, EL years and current contract rollbacks or there will be no season.
I guess it depends how much the players think is enough as far as the owners cutting back their demands.I also don't know if the owners are going to cut back on their demands very much,the owners might be hoping there is another Trevor Linden in the NHLPA.
