And more from

Basically, the NHL says that they want a hard salary cap, smaller incentives for rookies, and possibly revenue sharing and luxury taxes. The NHLPA wants a shorter season for the same amount of money, and NO salary cap of any kind.

The folks on TSN Sportcenter and SportsNet News basically admitted that come September 15th, there's almost certainly gonna be a lock-out. LUCKY US. Worst birthday ever. I'll be celebrating 19 years with more liqour than usual...

I was kinda leaning towards the Owner's side about a hard cap until I heard about the some $118 million dollars of "misplaced" revenue found by Forbes.

Glenn Healy said that even in '94 when he was on the Rangers Cup Winning Team when he went into negotiations, the team tried to claim they lost money that year and he said it didn't add up then and it doesn't add up now.

That's where the distrust from the players come and rightly so. The system they have right now is FAIR for salaries because the players don't really get to test any sort of free market until they're 31. Then the market dictates what a player's worth and that's how it should be.

The revenue sharing and luxury taxes should be implemented along with some other things to help police the owners. I'm sure the NHLPA will give in to some sort of cap but coming from their side, it's ludicrious for them to budge too much on that issue.

Ron Francis is a wonderful man. Although I was expecting him to retire, I was kind of hoping he'd come back to Pittsburgh to be our checking center.
