Collective Bargaining and the Future of the NHL
Unfortunately this off-season has provided ample time for every fan of the NHL to ponder the impending doom that is the upcoming season (or is it non-season?). The spectre of a lost season lurks on the horizon.
The CBA between the players and owners is set to expire, and the sides are not close to a new agreement despite holding talks. We, the fans, are the golden goose that provides the riches for the owners and players. Hopefully they will remember that fact when they next sit at the bargaining table.
