Notes On Our Game

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

- NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is adamant there will be a hockey season. It has become personal for him with ownership divided on whether or not to go forward. The questions now are, how long will the season be and when will it begin? … And, still, there’s no deal with the players, who are being asked to give more money back after agreeing to and signing off on a salary clawback in July. The threat for players now is the possibility of no money for a season not played as opposed to some money for a partial season. My bet: a 48-game season starting in mid-January, a tight schedule with playoffs ending in early July. And Bettman’s going to have to be creative in finding a way to entice the players to re-do a deal they’d already agreed to.

- The Bruins are the contract masters of the NHL. They don’t have a player making more than David Krejci’s $7.2 million a year. And they have Brad Marchand signed up for five more seasons, Patrice Bergeron for two more, and David Pastrnak for three more. All of them making less than William Nylander.
