I wonder if the NHL brass would think it's worth it, for the price of another lost season.

I mentioned it during the last negotiations.

I probably follow the NFL more than the NHL since the lockout and this years free agency has been great entertainment.

But can you imagine GMMG having ability to cut Booth, sit down with Burrows and force a renegotiation.....

Care to give a synopsis of how the CBA works in the NFL compared to the NHL?

I'm legitimately interested.

No worries if not.

They should never have done away with the ability to renegotiate contracts. Imagine how much better off we and Luongo would have been had we been able to renegotiate.
The only HW the Canucks need

I was thinking the same thing HW. I still think there is a serious player management issue here at the Canucks and that's on Mike Gillis. However, that aside, if we had the ability to renegotiate Luo's contract to something that doesn't create a cap recapture penalty for the team, chances are we'd still have Luo.

yup horribly mismanaged.

speaking of maata, I think Honka could be the future maata, steal of dman in the 1st round.

We'll see in a few years.

And then you'll able be to tell us "I told you so" and give yourself a nice pat on the back.

Quoting yourself is always good. I do that from time to time. :mrgreen:
