    need to cross the picket lines for the NHLPA to capitulate?

    Or perhaps, maybe they all cross, and Goodenow sits there and has a job for life spending the NHLPA slush fund, while the new NHLPA starts from scratch?

    They are locked out.
     
  3. And as soon as the NHL were declare an impasse and open up the doors to all comers the NHLPA would have to strike and setup a picket line. At which point all those players over in Europe are every bit a scab as every single player who crosses the picket line. I can't wait for the NHLPA explanation at that point.

    :lol

    come December, I see as many as 50 percent of the NHL players back in action
     
  5. at least 6 teams have already said they're not going to go with replacement players, the idea is pretty much DOA.

    I keep hearing this on message boards -- do you (or anyone else) have a link or anything? I'm dying to find out which teams, how they propose to sit out if the rest of the league plays, etc.

    Thanks.

    Did Brucie get that from the same source that told him about Bettman's cap bonus?

    This is "THE" interesting questions IMO. Can anyone imagine guys like Yashin, Holik Jagr, & Marchant not crossing the picket line immediately?

    This is what the owners are betting on. The players who are under contract will be VERY tempted to cross the picket line. It might only be 20-30% of all NHL'ers are under contract, but making $1.6M will look really good to Matthew Barnaby instead of sitting at home.

    Todd Marchant would make at least 10 and probably 20 times as much playing in the NHL as he would oversees. I would go so far as to say that he would make more playing for 1 more year on his current NHL contract than the rest of his life combined (if he's not playing in the NHL).

    the NHL...
    the only players that won't come back are the highest paid players who think they'll win this war

    I think you mean the highest paid players that currently aren't under contract. Guys like Holik, Jagr & Yashin would set a new record getting back to North America to collect their crazy arse paychecks!

    A reporter claimed this in an editorial without any information to back it up. I'm not sure if this is true, since it has not been reported anywhere else. He could also be assuming the six teams in Canada can't use replacements... :dunno:
