As predicted....

NHLPA flips Gary the bird.

They give 3 proposals all based around the "unlinked" system they proposed in their first offer. They know full well that the owners will never give up linkage so the reality is that they are not prepared to negotiate any type of give backs from the previous cba.

Right now it is virtually a given that a significant portion of the season will be missed.

It is a toss up whether you need more hockey skill to get your number retired by the Canucks or music talent/influence to get into the RRRHOF.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Still can't figure out which Gary Bettman orifice the NHLPA's fourth offer involves.

no not my list. I lisp lists

excerpt:Take a band like Deep Purple. Thirty-eight years since they first appeared, they are still recording and touring, although the face of the band has changed numerous times. They remain one of the greatest pioneering hard rock bands of all time. Do the individuals voting in this not recognize Ritchie Blackmore as one the greatest guitar players in history, likewise Ian Gillan vocally? Is it because they were labeled heavy metal? Does �In Rock� still sound too heavy 36 years later? If anyone wants to argue that hall members Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers have added more significance to music than Deep Purple, then that person is a sick, pathetic human being.

I bet it takes about 4 to 5 hours for the media and general public to switch back to the owners side.

If the Players simply re-hashed their previous offer it will be seen as a refusal to negotiate and more stone walling.

Not that I think public opinion is all that relevant.

Yep. The "PR battle" is totally overblown (and it seems like Fehr doesn't care at all to take part in it), but even despite their focus group leak the NHL have done well to back the PA into a corner in that regard this week.

That being said if you step back from that, so far the NHL have come more than halfway back from their initial proposal to the PA while the PA's "best" offer still doesn't even involve a hard cap or direct linkage.

Indeed.

Something that actually matters.


We all loathe Gary Bettman,
Leadership very borderli-ine.
Pissing off the NHL rank and file,
It sure ain't hockeytime.
Donald Fe-ehr and the players,
Were no better all around,
Bunch of assholes and their big guns,
Burn the league to the ground.
Smoke down at Rogers, Nucks Cup chances die.

Only detail Bettman provided was that the player's proposal included an increased share of HRR in year 1 ...

I'm sure that's bettman's wish is for everyone to believe he did his best before losing the season as if he and his position are victims on all this. Hopefully more will think like I do and that he and Jacobs and his ilk are just full of shit.

The equitable solution is out there, with no need for the pressure tactics or gun boat diplomacy.

The players just became little lighter in the wallets with this move. Their choice.
