from John Steigerwald of the Observer-Reporter,
If you’re a hockey fan, you should fear Donald Fehr.
He’s the guy who gave you what is now Major League Baseball. Of course, he couldn’t have done it without the full cooperation of the Idiots Who Run Baseball. Now, he is the head of the NHL Players Association.
The NHL’s collective bargaining agreement runs out in September of 2012. Here’s what Fehr said about the salary cap a few weeks ago, “In my judgment, the lynchpin of the labor peace you’ve had in baseball for a very long time is in fact the revenue sharing agreement. There is no cap in baseball, but it’s the revenue sharing agreement that made it work.”...
The NHL has several low revenue teams which are struggling to maintain the salary floor while still making a profit. They are vulnerable to be bought off by the NHL large market/high revenue teams the way baseball’s little guys were bought off.
