    Sounds like the NHLPA is asking the players to quickly re-vote on the DOI filing. Since they passed their internal deadline, they feel a need to re-vote for some reason.

    Also, the cap floor has come up as an issue between owners. Teams don't want it to go up too much as many can't afford to even spend to the floor with the new rules.

    I'm not sure how many teams "can't afford" to spend to the floor. I'm sure many don't want to spend to the floor, though.

    And this is where I tell the PA to screw off. They opened up their books to them and they still don't buy it.

    Feeling is PA is just trying to get the most out of this that they can and once the deadline is actually here, the deal will be done.

    It seems that a $60M cap in 2013/14 is the new hill the NHL will die on. NHLPA has come down to $65M and added in second compliance buyout...

    So going from $70.2M to $60M. Heh. Those teams that spent large are going to be in trouble.

    The difference is 5M. How about they split it in the middle -- or do it at 63M? The issue is the floor. If the Cap ceiling is 65M then the floor is 49M.. which the NHL thinks is too high. Why don't they have a $20M or $25M flat difference between the high and the low? It's always been the floor causing the problems... not the high.

    There has also been reports (Eklund again) that the NHL may consider a 30% salary variance within the contracts. Now that's more than the NHLPA requested... so what does the NHL want back? At least... if that is indeed the truth...

    That's it in a nutshell. Spread the ceiling and floor, getting rid of stupid contracts, and, sure, the parity in the league takes a tumble, but that's what the draft is for -- the bad teams get better via higher picks. Aren't they also increasing the UFA age? That would allow those teams to hang on to their young stars a little longer.

    30%? I'm really wondering -- and slightly worried -- about that. Unless they mean 30% year-over-year. The current 20% would be either on the average cap hit or the first year's salary. So if the player got $10M in year one, it could drop $2M in any subsequent year.

    The NHLPA has filed documents in court asking the courts to dismiss the NHL's suit. This was expected as they had to respond.

    Players will start a new vote on DOI tonight. 48-hour window to complete.

    General consensus is that this will go on for another week, right up to the deadline.

    So sit back and relax.

    Some in there I haven't even seen yet. The Godfather was really nice; loved the Bobby Orr flying goal.
