The old expression nothing ventured nothing gained comes to mind. There is no possible way to measure or anticapate all the negatives and positives of what a cap system will bring. We do know that the old system wasn't working so what's wrong with agreeing to a cap on a conditional trial basis with the right to revert back to something similar to the old system if it becomes obvious that a cap system is wrong for the NHL. Something has to be done soon because before this work stoppage I held most NHL players in high regard but the more players leave for other hockey jobs and the more players open their mouths these days to comment the more I am beginning to hate many players and I hate feeling that way so "BRING HOCKEY BACK NOW". CHELIOS IS A JERK AND DID NOTHING BUT HURT HOCKEY AND IT'S FANS WITH HIS COMMENTS YESTERDAY.
