from Jack Todd of the Montreal Gazette,
Meanwhile, the next time the NHL and the NHLPA go to the mattresses, the board of governors would do well to instruct Gary Bettman to forget the salary cap and cap the calendar instead. Fifteen years for Rick DiPietro, eight years for Briere, seven years for Gomez - it’s absurd.
Go back to the NHL record books seven or eight years ago and look at the number of players who were stars then, but are half-forgotten now.
Like to have Pavel Bure, anyone? Alexander Mogilny? Donald Audette? Jeremy Roenick? Michael Peca? Owen Nolan? Jose Theodore?
Put it this way: Signing free agents is a crapshoot and the longer the deal, the more crap in the chute.
much more... and note to Jack, there is hockey talk in the States, you just have to know where to find it.
