    .

    The players have already conceded 6 million from their stance. All the NHL has to do is up their offer by 3 million and we have a deal folks.

    I think I am gonna puke.

    $46M is too high! Hopefully, the NHL won't bite.

    $3 million is the approximate ticket revenue from 5 home games. It isn't a pittance.

    Yes, a cancelled season would be such a better alternative.

    The owners are looknig out for the fans best interests.

    Last ditch effort..

    Art Regner of WXYT 1270 said he just spoke with a high profile player who he trusts. The player said they have made a last ditch effort to get a deal. It's up to Bettman now. For those who dont know Art does the pre and post game shows for the Wings. Normally he doesn't talk out of his ass. He also said this player spoke with Draper and said Draper was just talking when Kris said he got a fax from the union saying the season was cancelled.

    The owners are clearly just bullying the PA now. The PA has continually made concessions and have tried to negotiate, finally going along with a salary cap, and the NHL is still rejecting them. How is a difference of $3-4 million going to make any difference for the 'poor small market teams' losing billions of dollars combined? **** Bettman and the NHL.

    $42 million is really respectable. Anything over 43 million wouldn't help the NHL much.

    The owners are only out to stomp the union. They don't give a **** about the fans period.

    Lets remember the comment when we are supporting the owners and the NHL

    cuz you're an expert on the situation and have seen all the books and know exactly what will help the league and what won't?

    give me a break

    it pisses me off these guys won't even take an extra day or so at least to do some real negotiations, instead turning to these hardline "take it or leave it i won't negotiate" tactics

    edit: this was in response to the poster saying "anything above $43 mill doesn't help the league"

    As I posted on a number of other threads, the difference is significantly greater than $3-4 million. The NHLPA thresholds are to be indexed using the 2005-2006 season as a base comparison. So the $49 million cap bandied about will only be in effect for this and next season when revenues will be down significantly, thereby keeping the owner salary costs in the 70-75% range. After next season the NHLPA gets to increase the thresholds if revenues increase compared to the disaster that next year will be. If there is a 30% drop next year (which is not inconceivable) then when the revenues return to the current 2003-2004 levels the NHLPA proposed cap goes to $70 million. That is only the hard portion, the soft cap is actually higher. So the difference we are talking about here is more like $30 million.

    I've been as pro-owner as anybody, but I have absolutely no idea why the owners would turn this down. I don't really see anything wrong with the players' very first offer on the cap, quite frankly.
