To me.. that is just plain stupid. All the NHLPA is doing is delaying the entire process. This has been going on for months.
Not that I believe anything he writes... but Eklund says he heard it went something like 55% share next season, then down to 52% then down to 50% -- don't know about the years, etc.. but they figure with the average growth in the NHL of 7% (hello... that won't happen now or going forward) the players could still retain the same $$$ they have now.
That would be ideal... and maybe something the Owners would look at... but if Eklund says it... it won't be true.
