I'm still wondering what the players expect to get? Obviously, since the owners rejected the players $49M offer and since the market for the NHL is shrinking every day passing by, does anyone believe the owners will ever accept a $49M cap offer anytime in the future? Now, if the owners don't accept a $49M offer anytime in the future, it means that the players will have to make a better offer in the future. In the meantime, between the last offer and the new one, the players will lose salaries (rest of the season + 55% of the playoffs). This brings the question: why aren't they making better offers now? If anyone can find any logic behind the current players actions, please write them down in this thread since I'm at a loss.
