Morning Line

So the CBA negotiations basically can be summarized thusly: The big-market teams don’t want to pay the small-market teams, the small-market teams don’t want to pay the players, and so, of course, the NHL is stuck in its flawed approach that satisfies both of these constituencies while reaching deep into the athletes’ pockets but doing nothing to generate revenue for cash-poor franchises.

And the fans shouldn’t want to pay the high ticket prices that were promised to come down after the last lockout.

I’m guessing the minnesota signings left a bad taste in the mouth of the big market teams.

Small market vs. big market .
Small market vs. players.
Big market vs. players.

As a red wing fan, I don’t like the salary cap. As a hockey fan, I love the salary cap.

Luxury tax? Not as lax as baseballs?
