Goodenow and Bettman should be fired now. No sense for them to keep their jobs if his league and his players are not playing. Get those mother FVCKERS out of there.

You know what the worst part is? Everybody's saying they were squabbling over $6.5 million. It was LESS than that. Including bonuses, the NHL offer totaled $44.7 million, while the PA offer, including bonuses, totaled $49 million.

That's $4.3 million. Or less than 10% of either proposal.

I've been staunchly pro-owner this entire time, but the fact Bettman would not accept the PA's last proposal is absolutely ludicrous. And to suggest that every team would spend the max cap when 3/5 of the teams would be under it? FVCK OFF!!!

Sheeps, not that simple. The players 49 could go higher than that for 2 of the six seasons.

I agree that not every team would hit the cap but I think the majority would. I think that other than the 5-6 trouble franchises, the rest would hit the cap.

Would a team really want to pay 150% in luxury taxes? Maybe, but let them, they'd only be allowed to do it twice.

The last PA deal is fair enough to not cancel the season. Is it ideal? No. But Bettman is thinking wrong - he claims the PA deal will hurt the NHL. But cancelling an entire SEASON will hurt the NHL far more than the PA deal.
