Lockouts FTW!


Everyone catch this little gem on tsn.ca?

(via: http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=400580)

For those of you too lazy to click on an external link, the important parts are as follows:


- A reduction of players' hockey-related revenues from 57 per cent to 46 per cent.

- Players would need to wait 10 seasons before becoming unrestricted free agents and that contracts would be limited to a maximum of five years.

- End to salary arbitration and that entry-level contracts would be five years instead of three as they are under the current CBA.

- Eliminate signing bonuses on future contracts and mandate that all future deals have an equal value for every year of the contract."

The lol factor is huge on this one. I wonder if the NHL hired Scott Howson to table some of this ridiculousness. There is going to be one helluva lengthy off-season if the NHL is only looking to budge slightly from this offer.
