I must be the only one who's seeing the Owner's side of things.
Shea Weber, Parise getting 26M in 2 years, crappy players getting superstar money.
Look at our team, we look dwarfed comparing to other team's payment structures.
Sedin's make 6.1 each!!! They are top 5 in the league, Parise is getting paid 14+ this year!!
I don't know if 46% is right, but 50% sounds about right.
Also Bettman saying this is probably for the best. Donald Fehr was an idiot for stating the league would play if no deal was in place. No league in the world has done that.
All in all, let's get this done boys, theres no point in locking out, they all know it will only hurt the fans and the players as fans won't care as much a year from now.
Please don't forget, The USA cares about NFL, NBA, MLB and not the NHL. Hell I think the PGA is bigger than the NHL in the States as a whole.
Also seriously, let's take the trash out. Take out a Florida team, take out Columbus, Take out Coyotes and maybe even Predators.
With 4 teams gone, games will be good EVERY NIGHT.
Am I the only one stuck with crapty Canucks vs CBJ tickets?
