Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Bob DiCesare of the Buffalo News,
...two seasons after its historymaking and image-fracturing lockout, the NHL is in some ways right back where it started. The average salary will top $2 million this coming season, compared to $1.8 million pre-lockout, even though salaries were reduced by 24 percent at the start of the new collective bargaining agreement. Small-market franchises are still struggling with financial issues and feeling like they’re being bullied by their mightier brethren. In-fighting has arisen among front offices with differing outlooks on running their clubs. The business model has changed but the gripes remain the same.
