If we are throwing around blame, I think the owners started way too low and from there it was two guys doing their dirty jobs at the top of both parties.

The 2005 agreement was much longer in the making plus it cost a season and it was much worse. It's probably the main reason we had this stoppage. Too many concessions made in desperate times. The players gave a ton off the top, the owners gave them too much revenue share in return and, significantly, the small market owners made way too many concessions to the bigger market ones to keep them on board.

I am glad we will see an end to these bloated ass contracts, those were just absurd. The two buyouts will mean some get out of jail free cards for the big spenders and take some of those deals off the books.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

first off they are way under the cap anyway but beyond that they have almost all home-grown guys and team controlled contracts. even the guys that aren't in those groups like Jackman and McDonald are very good values. Pollak makes OK money but he did a good job on defense last year. obviously they have to ear mark some money for pietrangelo's extension but overall their money situation is excellent with a lot of very manageable contracts.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Some interesting things in the new CBA...

2 amnesty buyouts in the next couple years. The cap lowering a little bit soon. Seven and eight year term limits.

Go Wings.

In response to Reply # 10


  

          

there is little ticky tack crap like ELC and minimum salaries tweaks but the variance of salary is big.

the big market teams and players won a small victory as the salary can vary up to 35% from year to year, i believe. that is way up from the 10% (a la NBA) the owners had pushed for. the biggest year of the deal and the smallest can only have a 50% variance though, so no more of these ridiculous deals with a $12M season and a 500K season.

that needed to happen. they really fucked up with the whole "average cap number" thing, vis a vis market competition and roster continuity it was a real elephant in the room. if the league had any balls they would have been using their discretion (was in the CBA) to be crush those deals from day one. they did not want to step on the toes of their big breadwinners though.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

In response to Reply # 15


  

          

I feel like the 82 game season is too much, especially when you tack the playoff length onto that. I know it would put the majority of the season in competition with the NFL, but a 48 game October to February (roughly) season with playoffs through March/April would be just right.

if they had a 48 game sched they could have way fewer three in four nights and back to backs in general. they would have full camp also.

this is going to be really intense.

virtually no training camp, a number of injuries (guys playing overseas and shit) and a sprint to the finish. it's going to feel fast and grueling.

I dont think its to long. But that's probably because I grew up a baseball fan and I'm used to insanely long schedules. I wouldn't mind those 82 games taking place a little quicker. Sometimes there are like 4 days off between games.

Only a game that someone gave me tickets to. I know there's been a lot of lip service about not supporting the NHL the same way... but for me, it'll certainly take some time to want to spend any money on it.

I will only use my father inlaws company tickets. My first lock out so I am not as pissed as others here. I was going to buy my wife a jersey year. I think she might have to wait. Unless can find one on ebay. I am not giving them any money this season.

Nonis is just laying in wait every time lol. Sudden. Oh well, I would have liked to see Burke sink with the ship.

I wonder if this was over Luongo. The organization wants him, Burke doesn't, that seems to be the consensus. I bet it's going to be some messy trade with a bunch of interchangeable parts that winds up being Luongo for a second rounder or something.
