    So instead of getting 20% of their NHL salary, they can get a whopping 21.68% (an 8.4% raise).

    Wait, but wouldn't that be evil linkage. No wait, upward inkage, sorry indexing, is always OK.

    That's it? 8.4%?

    So the difference between the "best players in the world" and "no-name worthless scrubs" is negligible.

    And so they are being correspondingly compensated.

    And in other breaking news, the NHL set an all-time low for attendance this season.

    So ...how long before the former NHL players use this as leverage to insist they be partners with the league? I am sure the cries of injustice about the Swedish owners hiding revenue will be the next AP article. :joker:
