Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jim (Boomer) Gordon of Sirius/XM NHL,
So I couldn’t wait any longer. As this season continues to erode away, and negotiations have been brought to a standstill, it was time to put my two cents in.
The owners have stated that they would like a 50/50 deal. The players say they are willing to accept that relationship, as long as their current offers are honored. So why so difficult? If they are on the same page, why can’t they speak the same language?
I set out to see if I could split the difference. Create a system where an equal split can be attained, while the players are compensated in full for their existing contracts.
As it turns out, with a little “shared sacrifice”, it was a relatively easy deal to get done.
