What do you consider a fair CBA?

Contract length limits are an absolute MUST. I hated these 10 year deals when they were first introduced. Zetterberg and Franzen are on the books until what, 2020?

At least Z is still gonna be worth his salary by the end of it. Dude competes.

Maybe this has been mentioned already, but I personally don't see the need for a limit on contract length. If they want to address the issue of circumventing the salary cap by adding on additional years at the end of the contract, just change the rules going forward to make the cap hit for each year be that of the player's salary for that year. That would end the signing bonuses and the cap circumvention, but would still allow players to sign lifelong contracts for the sake of security.

Making it so the cap hit is their actual salary and gettting rid of signing bonuses and front loading could probably get rid of the lifetime contracts. GM's may be more hesitant to dish them out. I still think there should be a 6-7 year max though.

The owners like him. That's why he has his job.

They especially "like" the way he's handled the debacle in Glendale; at least that's what the "gag order" statements say.

Id like to see a one year sit out for players who change teams like in college football.

Bettman is that you?

No, this is Donald Fehr.

below are his extended demands when he received an offer fro nhlpa:

- A salary of $3 million per year to run through completion of collective bargaining after the current CBA expires following the 2011-12 season.

- A salary of $1.5 million for the remainder of this year.

- Approval to hire his brother, Steve, who is currently special counsel to the MLBPA (after 23 years as outside counsel), to an executive position.

- Autonomy relating to all personnel decisions within the union.

- The ability to live in New York even though the PA's offices are in Toronto.

- Permission to co-author a book about baseball with Steve.

- Permission to open a consulting firm, though with the express stipulation that his first priority at all times will be the NHLPA.

No comments needed.

My honest opinion?

Luxury tax.

Teams with $$$ can spend all they want (albeit a penalty added for going over the 'soft cap').

Low floor cap to appease the welfare cases of the league.

5 year max contracts for players.

It'll resemble MLB, but who the f#*k cares - as long as there's a season, and both sides get what they want.

Oh - and fire Uncle Gary.

Oh - and players get 48% of revenue.
