    2 weeks eh? How do you know?

    I get the impression it will never be released to the masses.

    Suggestion

    Once a link is available, maybe it could be stickied at the top of this forum?

    I am pretty sure Bettman said it would be available in the near future, and the last CBA was on the web in all its glory.

    Certainly a better understanding of how the CAP works is needed, as MANY fans will want that information.
     
  6. Did NHL.com have the old CBA on site? I know the PA did. I can hardly wait to start diving into the 600 page document.

    I think I'd rather read my textbooks for my exams than read the CBA. And trust me, that's saying alot.

    I just want to read the CAP definition. which I'm sure is a 30+ page slog. The revenue sharing, not so much.

    It's probably already written up given each player and the media got their personal copy. It's just to find the person with Adobe on the PC to convert it to a pdf file :D .

    Do you really think they gave each player their own personal copy of this 600+ page document? If they did then alot of trees died for nothing because I can guarantee you that most of them didn't read it.

    Yes they did, unfortunately, because I saw players with binders stating "Collective Bargaining Agreement 2005" and their name on te front of the binder. You could see the binders of Shawn McEachern on TV as well as from Tie Domi and Jeff O'Neill. Maybe it was only for those who attended the meeting in Toronto.

    It was probably typed up during the process on laptops, and then will be converted to PDF whenever they get around to it.

    OR

    It was typed up and printed, and they lost the original DOC files (?), and will have to scan it using a PC with appropirate scanner and OCR software, and then verify it and convert it to PDF.

    I'm pretty sure it's the first option though.
