http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20050608.wnhltalks8/BNStory/Sports/ Hot off the press, it looks like previously to today, the NHL and NHLPA have agree to salary-cap system based on team-by-team revenue. Now it's left to the other issues. A few comments: 1. I can't see them taken much longer than a couple weeks on the others issues like salary arbitration, free agency, qualifying contract offers, and entry-level contracts. The middle to end of June looks likely barring a wrench thrown in by either side. 2. From the article, it looks like certain team will be able to spend more than others due to a floating cap. That was a big bone thrown to the PA, and I disagree with it. The luxury tax better have significant teeth, or smaller teams will suffer. Also, whatever other plan they come up with to share revenue better be substancial, or the league will have problems down the road. 3. Nice to see the players like Linden take some control back from Goodenow. It is going to help their image a little bit.
