Bruins Owner Talks CBA

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

A few thoughts from Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs, in for a visit Tuesday night with the Capitals playing on Causeway Street:

On the NHL Players Association’s recent decision not to break the collective bargaining agreement, guaranteeing labor peace through at least 2010-11:

“It seemed the only intelligent thing they should do, and they haven’t necessarily done the smartest things right along. There are a lot of things I don’t like about [the CBA], but for us and the league, it’s the right paradigm.”

On what he doesn’t like about the CBA:

“It’s expensive. It’s hard to live with . . . it’s a lot of money [to the players] and it’s hard to make these businesses successful with what is left for [owners]. I am not in a position to talk too specifically, otherwise I get in trouble. But for the Bruins, it’s very expensive to live with…

more and more hockey talk too…

Way to be a ‘partner’ Mr. Jacobs!
