I give him respect, he was on the Fan 590 radio show taking calls. Big Balls. Everyone (mostly) was agiainst him and the players. I was not able to get through but i would have argued that the OWNERS have guarenteed the players contracts, the OWNERS have guarenteed that 30 teams and all the jobs will stay in tacked, the OWNERS have assured that the minimum salary will increase, the OWNERS pay the flipping bills and lose their shirt like the Ottowa owners Bryden did not the players. The players say to the membership, go play in Europe or whatever, the union says its ok if you fold teams, the union says a cap won't work because we don't like it never mind it saved basketball and it works pretty well in football and the baseball situation is messed up with a ridiculous luxury tax. The players don't get it, a salary tax will ensure the viability of the NHL and then the players can get back to work making a nice salary and doing what they love. The union says the owners won't negotiate, sure they will, agree to a system then negotiate the following....level of cap, entry level cap, free agency, greater revenue from their images and equipment like sweaters and sticks arbitration, UFA pension plan Screw the players and i hope they go to Europe or Iceland. The players are ruining the game not the owners, the players could come out smelling like roses if they would use some common business sense. They are the labour and the product but they are not the owners, heck they would not even invest in the WHA and make their on league. Thanks for the chance to rant.
