from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

The NHLPA held a membership-wide conference call Friday in which the players essentially decided to defer a decision on how to handle upcoming crushing escrow losses until a verdict on this season is rendered, per a source who participated in the give-and-take.

As we reported Thursday, the league has informed the union that cancelation of the season could mean a revenue loss of up to $1 billion. That would translate to approximate escrow losses of up to 35 percent per player.

If there is nothing the union can do about that, and it seems to be locked in by the collective bargaining agreement 50-50 partnership on hockey-related revenue, the players are sure going to want to hold next year’s number down as much as possible, which is why it is impossible to predict what that cap might be, and what the personnel fallout might be across the league.

No they weren’t. Google it. There are DOZENS of article detailing that, as or Mar 11, they were planning on playing in an empty arena.

Surprising that Brooks the hack would ignore the FACT that the plan was that the Blue Jackets were going to play IN AN EMPTY ARENA.

All the people being laid off during this crisis and a POS hack like Brooks is still collecting a paycheck.
