I really think there will be hockey.Why? Simple. I think the players didnt expect that the NHL will present a new proposal.And YES, this proposal WILL INCLUDE a salary cap.Why they will accept it? Because they have no choice.If they decide to refuse it again, we all know that next year a lot more players will become free agent.How many exactly? over 500 i think? ( correct me if im wrong ).Then with all those free agent, the NHL will have more people on their side anyway, to pass the famous salary cap. If the nhlpa decide to refuse the salary cap.Its simple.Nearly all their players will have no job by next year.And im sure none want that. Ohhh sure, they still can go steal jobs in europe...at 1/5 to 1/10 of what they can win in the nhl... But a salary cap of 37 millions tho is ridiculous.Id go for a cap of 42-45 millions. If nhlpa refuse the next nhl proposal, then we can just blamed the nhlpa to screw this season.Cause instead of working a cap that Bettman propose ( increase the cap of 37 to 42),they decide to cry like big babies in their corner. GO NHL GO!
