Kukla's Korner Hockey

Key players have been the first to receive contracts and cream the big money but sacrifices will have to be made and old ties severed. Expect more deals and trades before the puck drops in October than a typical week on Wall Street. If players can't make the dollars they were privy to under the old free market model they'll go where they like as opposed to where the money is. The obvious consequence is that Canadian players, which make up the majority of the league, will play for the teams they idolised as youngsters. That's most likely to be the Montreal Canadiens and the Toronto Maple Leafs so we could see those teams return as the forces they once were.
