    How many 1st line players who aren't playing and making $700,000 a year are there?

    Never mind, I missed the "making $700,000 a year" part. Either that or Modano's Ferarri insurance is going up.

    Matt Cooke played on the first line for a good chunk of last season

    It could very well be it. He's made peanuts his whole career and has had a daughter since he was 16.

    This is from the end of the article posted above, love how the NHLPA supporters say how its all about watching the players and not the teams. Maybe the UHL will have to cut the $500/week cap to $400/week.

    stan fischler's articles are a joke. he has a tendency to fabricate problems or greatly exaggerate any point against the NHLPA. he also exhbits poor journalistic integrity as evidenced by him recycling quotes from the past and presenting them in the context of the present. this guy lives off verbal sparring and he has nothing to back it up.

    C is possibly the stupidest thing I have ever read. And I've read pretty much every post in this forum.
     
  15. Michael Ryder? Nils Ekman? Tyler Arnason? Trent Hunter? David Vyborny? Jonathan Cheechoo? Alexandre Daigle?

    Don't know how much each of these guys make -- but just by looking at last years stats they all look like possibilities.

    I have a tendency to think that the $700,000 isn't just salary, as speculated. If it were a fringe NHLer, you think he'd be broke? I'd bet that the guys below $1 mill should be smart enough to save their money, be it lockout or retirement or getting his ass shipped to somewhere in Europe like Jeff Shantz.

    The $700,000 could be net (after all, alot of guys have extra income outside of hockey. Be it shreddies cerreal commericals or Joe Sakic's restraunt, or even Jaramir Jagr's line of women's fashions) and not just NHL salary.

    I take it the player must be a team's player rep to even be in the meeting? That should discount a lot of players mentioned.

    Esche makes $775,000 per season, just got married so he doesn't want to go to Europe, and is a Flyers player rep. The first-line player thing is throwing me off, though.

    That's a tad harsh. The man is more experienced than just about anyone in hockey today when it comes to journalism, and actually writes very good articles, not to mention books. I happen to think he's a very good author.
