Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
On the flavor of the talks: It's pretty one-sided. I don't really know what (the owners) have given up to this point. They're trying to take away all the contracting rights. The question I'd ask is why would we change that? I think we all think it's the most competitive league in the world so why would you go and change that -- the way contracts go and the way teams can operate? If it's not broke, don't fix it. I understand their point. At the end of the day it's dollars, but at the end of the day you want to get a deal done. I don't think they're going to get a deal done if they're trying to take away guys' contracting rights.
