Not sure they can do that. They would have to factor in how cities/states in the US pay for stadiums, equalizing concession prices, etc. I don't think there is a way to really do that unless the NHL imposes it's own 'tax' on players. I think then you get into income tax issues, etc. It sounds easy on paper but each state/province has different rules. Unless they sign contracts or adjust the cap based on after-tax dollars somehow.

Man, I had seen that Byfuglien had taken a leave of absence from the Jets, but I had no idea what for. Now it sounds like he’s mulling retirement (he was one year left at $7.5M and is 34 years old). Hard to imagine someone passing up $7.5M for one year of hockey, but if his head isn’t in it and it’s certainly taken a toll on his body…well…maybe he does pull the plug. Crazy. I feel bad for Winnipeg…they have so much going for them, but keep having these crazy situations.

Not to mention Laine making those comments about how he should be a top line player and would be playing with top line guys on other teams…all while he remains an unsigned RFA.

Man, he must be right messed up. Probably concussions?

Remember the good old days of Fat Byfuglien.

And Laine, man up you little Wing Dang Doodle. Man, I hate that attitude.

These hockey players keep forgetting about the internet and Google translate.

I know you can't judge a book by the cover, but Laine doesn't look very smart.

Dare I say I'd rather be a Sens fan than a Jets fan right now?

He’s moody. He’s the bad kind of cocky. Selfish on the ice. Has anger issues and can’t control his emotions. Lastly, nothing is ever his fault. The weird thing is, all these things only come out when he enters the arena.

Peterborough just told Merkley to not even come to their city. They are having trouble trading him because nobody wants him.

Want to hear hilarious? Merkley is playing Jr. B this season now.

It won’t last, but still funny. An OHL team or overseas are probably where he will end up this season.
