So let me get this right. You are the only one that doesn't think this is a good step in the right direction? I don't understand what you think the owners should have to give up. should it be more like a 70-30 split for the players or something and then you might be happy? I mean really.
People are making an incredible mistake here:
50/50 = - 7 % for the players
ELC up from 3 to 4 years
UFA up from 7 to 8 years
contract lenght capped at 5 years
salary cap down by 10 million
Point 1 - 4 are things the NHL will have to change and it would be utterly stupid for the NHLPA to accept anything, without getting a hold of it first.
50-50 is fine and fair seeing how bad they both want more than the other
ELC up from 3 to 4 years...why not? works for the nfl just fine.
UFA up from 7 to 8 years..no comment really
contract lenght capped at 5 years..my fav no more awful contract that we all have been complaining about that even our own players on the wings have.
salary cap down by 10 million...why not? keep it from getting out of hand like every other sport in the world.
my other fav is the 5 year contracts can only vary by 500k per year if i read that right. no more bottoms dropping out at the end of contracts
