Player salaries were reduced by 24% when the 2005 CBA went in. The Rangers had a payroll of $69 million in 03-04 and in the first year of the CBA the cap was set at $39 million.

Yah and there was a period where teams could buy out contracts without any penalties. I forget who the players that could bought out were.

Wow, that was a massive cut.

You guys remember how much players like Jagr use to make back in the days?

Haven't really followed the CBA stuff - how close are the 2 sides? I can't imagine having to endure another lockout. 2 in less than 10 years. Blah.

The NHL made a new offer couple days ago. The NHLPA was suppose to make a counter proposal today, but it didn't happen. Where they are apart are Hockey related revenue, how it is defined and who gets what size of the pie.

Malkin signed to play in the KHL. Some guys like Bogosian are going under the knife. Not that these things point to it, but my opinion is, best case scenario, a shortened season.

Jordan Eberle re-signs with Oilers for 6 years at $36 million. Giving away money like candy.

I remember lining up for the NHL11 (or was it NHL10) release at Metro with both Sedin brothers. Biggest gongshow ever, but I got a signed limited edition cover by both of them

They can keep sucking and drafting all the top talent they want because in the cap system moving forward they're not going to be able to keep them all. Sucking long term is only good if you can turn the corner, sign some vets and ice a winning team, the Blackhawks did it right.

Oilers just need to get rid of horcoff/hemsky and Souray's buyout is off the books next year. Khabibulan frees up 3.75mil as well. Only problem is, they may need to trade one of rnh/yakupov/eberle/hall in order to improve their Defense. I don't think the cap hit will roll back as it will create more complications.

Sorry, I thought this was amusing because it's rare to see two superstars go at it. Corey Perry vs Mike Richards back in juniors.
