I was thinking today that we have some pretty smart hockey minds here on this board. It might be fun to put together 2 sides, owners and players, maybe 5 or 6 per side and we can negotiate offers back and forth and try to get this resolved. We have a pretty good idea where things are at with revenues etc...

I know it would be pretty straight forward and we would likely agree on splits down the middle on most items, but I would be curious to put myself in a role and see what things really matter to me (and others on my side).

If you are interested, let me know. We could keep it online here on CDC and see where we get to.

This will obviously turn into a pissing match, lmao. But I'm in, put me on the players side as I have a feeling the owners side will comprise of fwbwed and Drybone.

At what point in the negotiations are we starting, with the NHL's initial offer or the most recently tabled proposal?

I'm ready to talk, but I feel like the opposing party needs a few more weeks off to think of an idea and submit an offer. Again, We're ready to talk...anywhere.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

That's a dramatic overstatement and entirely unfair for you to get visitors' hopes up by categorizing this thread as "hilarious" when the participants have yet to come to a binding agreement regarding the humour level.

??? my comments was in reference to the commentaries made specific to this thread made by posters and the humour employed by them. Not sure if you read the other comments on this thread. PS. this is a hypothetical scenario thrown out to the general public, not real, nothing binding nor involve millions and billions of dollars, if nothing else just for entertainment/discussion value.

LOL...now your sarcastic commentary went over my head...my bad :P

Okey, with all this goofing around, how are we supposed to resolve this?!?!? :lol:

:lol: I know! My comments were a parody of Bettman's rant about Fehr telling the media a deal was imminent shortly before it all went belly up.

How about this?

The players get back on the ice, the owners take the public's money, the players try to perform their best to get the highest compensation they can, and the GMs stay within their budgets?

"Common sense" well they did ask to bring something new and novel to the table...perhaps they should take a jab at that and see where it gets them :)

This sounds nothing like a typical NHL lockout. Actually the way these boards generally function is much closer to an actual lockout : endless squabbles, catchy soundbites and memes, and eventually just ignoring anyone with a different viewpoint.

That's a pretty fair description of what the last 4 months have felt like.

Can I be a lawyer? Don't care what side, as lawyers don't care about sides, and all of them will make a ton of money no matter which sides wins...and will probably make more money the longer it drags on...

Yeh, I would solve the lockout in 20 mins.

List the points to be negotiated.
Give them a week to settle on any they can then hand a judge a pair of dice and let him throw for each side on every points still in dispute.

Settled!..........now let's play hockey.

Can anyone say that isn't fair :towel:
