Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Peter Adler of The Cult of Hockey,
Do you realize that the fate of this NHL season depends on a phantom issue?
Yes. It’s most unfortunate, but that’s how it is.
What seems to be the main stumbling block? Why, the idea that the owners have to honour player contracts signed under the rule of the previous collective bargaining agreement.
The strangest thing is the league doesn’t really even have to entertain this idea, never mind make any offers to make players “whole,” as the legalistic description has it.
