isn't that 3 years?
and why not?
I guess because it would make sense. we can't have that.
Because Gary Bettman won't throw his players a bone. As Stephen A. puts it.
Creative thinking... I like it.
I meant, go for two seasons each at those numbers for a total of 6 years.
In which direction?
I think the owners might bite on 47.5, 45 then 42.5 to close out the contract (only if the 24% rollback is still on the table and the numbers are hard cap)
oh my mistake.
that works out even better >_>
Quick, send it to Bob and Gary's Blackberries!
that makes to much sense my friend, and when dealing with the NHL and NHLPA common sense just doesn't work most of the time.
I don;t think it matters. After 6 years, the number would be rengotiated anyway. Going down would probably work as it would mean for less purging for season one.
That's what I was thinking. With the rollback the big spenders would have the cap space time to pair down their payrolls, if the deal was front end loaded.
In six years we will hear Brain McCabe say:
'I will never ever play without linkage! Even if they offer a 100M$ cap, I wont play, my kids wont play. Ever. We nedd Linkage, and we are resolved. Gary sucks.'
Or somethig like that..
