I think the NHLPA should decertify, and let the NHL hang themselves. Why should the players put themselves in a situation where they take all the blame. Decertify, and force the owners to budget their own teams. It should not be the the responsibility ot the NHLPA to set the budgets for the teams. Decertifying would force them to do that. Every player would be on his own, and would be accountable only to the team he is contracted to play for. There would no gamle in the draft as players would be signed only if they can perform. Like the NFL, there would be no over head for a farm team, as players might play on a farm team, but have no accountability except the team he plays for. If a player is needed from a farm, the team he is playing for would have to be paid a release fee. America stands for free enterprise, and this is how the NHL, or any other business should be run, and no agreements should be put in place to circumvent the laws of our lands. Your thoughts!!!!
