Finnish Players Say: There will be no hockey next season.

Today’s edition of the Finnish sport’s magazine Veikkajaa(a really poor version of Hockey News)

Featured interview’s with several Finnish NHL players.

Teppo Numminen, who was apart of the 94´ CBA says ” I’m sure, not a single NHL game will be played next season” Other players including Ville Nieminen, Jarkko Ruutu and three-time Selke winner Jere Lehtinen agree with him.

Quote from Nemo “With these terms, I’m ready not to play to the end of days”

Reasoning for this:

In the 1994 CBA, the owner’s weren’t organized and were surprised of players being organized, that’s the reason why they finally gave up.

Now eight years later the situation is alot different,

owners have stocked up money for a couple of years and hockey players have done the same.

Numminen “Last time neither party wasn’t prepared as well as now and still it lasted for six months.”

Owner´s have had there way in MLB, NBA & NFL

And in those league’s even the biggest and baddest contract´s are not unbreakable, owner’s can break them when they want. And according to Veikkajaa the owners want a 33$$$ cap and all current contract’s released.

My Take: 1994 Owner´s gave up, 2004 neither one will. Next time we will see NHL Hockey will be in two years.

p.s sorry for bad English.
