I just think there might be some sort of Get Out of Jail free card for some of these teams.

Good to know you’ve got it all sorted out before they have even had discussions :lol: :roll:

Why would Bettman allow CBO’s to the rich teams after he retroactively punished them for lifetime contracts?

Think about it, Blob.

*sigh*

I've explained to you why they've done it in the past and how those circumstances won't be there this go around.

The NHL doesn't want CBOs, most of the teams don't want CBOs, and the players certainly don't want them.

I know you want to believe there will be more CBOs in the next CBA

... but there is no logic to it whatsoever.

There is no reason for either side to "discuss" CBOs, wake the fuck up.

You're coming across as some kind of a unicorns and rainbows kinda guy here Blobert...

I’m aware the players don’t want it. But in reality, they don’t control the situation.

I absolutey want it as a Canucks fan if the team is on an upswing and can ditch a putrid contract or two.

I’d assume there are ten teams that would like to clear up their garbage contracts at .50 on the dollar and some of them are heavy hitters when it comes to negotiating these deals.

You seem kinda dug in here like you are some sort of insider and get angry at anyone questioning you. Sitting in on the negotiation are you? :lol: Or is it the fact that you are miserable that you are pissing razor blades?

I have shown that the reasons for past CBOs are gone.

He punished SOME teams. He also let Chicago do what they want with regards to Hossa. He lets the Leaves do their own thing.

Wilson's suspension is upheld.

Good on the NHL, his next suspension will be half a season.

What, Bettman upheld the league's original ruling?? Shocking! :lol:

Next step in the process is to go before a neutral arbitrator...

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

So that's what happened to ol' Cody, that's crazy man.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
