1. Does this hurt Hartsburg if/when he gets back to coaching in the NHL? 2. Are the former players echoing what the current players are thinking? http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Hockey/NHL/2005/01/14/898403.html Cap the only way: Hartsburg By TERRY KOSHAN -- Toronto Sun The road to NHL success in the future has to be partially paved with a salary cap. That's coming from former NHL defenceman Craig Hartsburg, who enjoyed a solid 10-year career with the Minnesota North Stars before moving into the coaching ranks with the Chicago Blackhawks and Anaheim Mighty Ducks. "I do (feel a salary cap is needed) because I don't think some of the owners can cap themselves," said Hartsburg, who left his role as an assistant behind the Philadelphia Flyers bench earlier this season to take over as head coach of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. "They make it worse for everybody else. The financial part has to change before (the game) can change anywhere else. If they all work together, players and owners, and come up with the right numbers, I think it can work."
