If this new hockey league can have a 15 million cap and the NHL average star salary 10 years ago was 5-6 million, I see no reason why they can’t cut it off now. Players are getting too greedy and teams are getting to despirate to buy a championship.
Baseball is out of hand and Football is ran perfectly. Make the NHL like the NFL now before we have another Yankee team in hockey and no one want’s to watch.
Hockey would be much more exciting if any team can win a stanley cup instead of expecting the Red Wings, Avalance, Flyers, Blues, and Stars in the playoffs every year. I’m sick of teams like the Rangers and Maple Leafs diging into their pockets to out do everyone.
Right now I would love to see a semi-hard cap enforced just to see what some teams would do.
End it now enforce a cap and make Hockey a sport to watch instead of striking and running a risk of lossing any fan base that is left. If the strike ends without cap in effect they might as well quit playing hockey all together because no one wants to watch another Baseball season in effect.
By the way, A Luxury Tax didn’t work for baseball why the hell would it work for Hockey. The same damn teams are in the playoffs every damn year.]]>
The NHLPA is saying they will never take a cap, while the NHL is saying that they have to have a cap
So one of these sides is going to give in soon or later and so far it looks like both are pretty stubborn.
