    Is the NHL doomed to sign a new CBA with the NHLPA ? Can't they just invite anyone willing to play and negotiate a new CBA with anyone willing to step up and represent the scabs ?

    EDIT :

    I'm asking this, just to know if this could be a last resort move from the NHL if the upcoming negociations fail.

    Sure. Many think thats the route the league wants to go. But first they have to get an impasse declared so they can implement their best offer. They also stand the risk of the PA decertifing as a negotiating body. If that happens, there's no CBA. Every player becomes an independent contractor.

    Employers cannot coerce locked out workers to join another bargaining unit. It's against the law.

    Hooray for them. That's why there's labor law. To prevent endemic systemic economic abuses inherent in employer/employee relations.

    I liked your earlier comment about issuing a copy of "Labour Relations for Dummies" to some of these posters.

    You may find this interesting. This is material prepared by Paul Weiler, one of the leading labour, sports and entertainment law experts who teaches at Harvard law school. His review of the history of anti-trust law as it applies to sports is very helpful. It is long, almost 400 pages but is it good. Parts II and III give the labour law specifics and history as well as very detailed explanation of anti-trust law and its application. The 1987 MLBPA de=certification is covered in some detail (pp108-110). Enjoy. :

    Iginla will get a salary rollback if the cap is under last years team salary.

    Iginla made 7.5 million last season of his teams $36,402,600 or 20.6%

    Say the cap is 30 million, Iginla’s salary would be scaled down to:

    0.206 X 30,000,000 = $6,180,877.19

    However it would probally be MUCH lower as that would be a quite high salary(if not the highest) under a 30-35 million cap.

    Hockey Central put it best for Calgary: Calgary has for the first time in 10 years been in the red and it ONLY took 7 games in the Stanley Cup Finals to achieve.
