I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up like that by the middle/end of the new CBA anyway like with the last CBA.

I read a rumor that the next CBA could be 10 years in length, which is good to avoid this crap for a decade, but could be bad for us if the CBA favors larger markets for 10 years.


The big market teams have more pull... so I don't expect complete parity, but I'd like to think the small market teams will be able to compete on some level.

What they need to do is eliminate the loopholes. The last CBA had too many of them and they were not all that hard to figure out.

It is only tentative so far, but is better than nothing.

At last!

The next stage is documentation and ratification of the deal, with the start date and number of games in the 2012-13 season still to be announced depending on how long the final process takes.

Looking forward to watching some NHL this year...from my couch. I missed hockey, but am piddleed off enough not to spend a dime in tickets and merch. I'll go watch next season, but will be relucant to buy merchandise. Would be nice to hear chants of "You're all greedy" in each stadium in the first minute or two from puck drop. And I mean all 15 games to start the season. That'll be ESPN newsworthy ...I was watching ESPNews and the coverage had no mention of hockey in the 40 min I watched lol.

The probability of the cap going up a lot with this new CBA is going to continue harming small market teams from competing. I don't see how sustainable it can be for a club with a small fan club such as the Panthers or Ducks to compete against teams like the Leafs or Rangers when revenue won't be coming in as big and quickly. I hope there is a mechanism in place to help out the struggling franchises because if there isn't there will be many more relocating franchises or contractions.

The buyout clause could benefit small market teams but I see it more as a advantage for the big market teams who sign those ridiculously big contracts and then try to bury it under the rug. This way teams like the Rangers who have Redden buried in the minors or the Hawks who will try to buyout Olesz without sacrificing cap space.

I'm glad that hockey is back but there are some serious questions marks still remaining with this new CBA and the owners or players could still reject it when it comes to voting for it.

Couldn't have said it better. I can't wait to be watching hockey again but nothing has changed for us fans here; we're still just walking/talking ATM machines to the players and owners.

With all that cap, if Murray doesn't get Perry and Getzlaf signed soon we could lose one or both of them...

I was really hoping the cap would come down to where Anaheim would be in a good position to compete. With the second buyout exception, and the high cap, it's going to be a long hard road for the Ducks unless Samueli is willing to stomach some losses (short term of course).

I'm hoping we at least qualify to some degree for revenue sharing. I haven't heard much about what changes took place in the new CBA.

Not sure it makes much of a difference.
