Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
What should have been a fairly do-able mathematical adjustment last summer has transformed into the perhaps most ridiculous labor impasse in the history of pro sports.
Honestly, I can’t wrap my head around this one.
Are the owners and players really going to let the season get canned over the differences that remain in the two offers?
I would make the argument that the players are crazy to take that kind of financial hit rather than accept what the league and owners offered Wednesday night.
Similarly, the owners are out of their minds if they don’t see elements in the NHLPA’s counteroffer that they can live with to get hockey back this season.
Are we really going to drop the ax on an entire season because the owners are THAT adamant about five-year term limits for player contracts? And are the players THAT opposed to five-year contract term limits to let an entire season’s worth of salary go down the drain?
It’s pure madness in my opinion. All of it. Both sides.
