The Circle will Turn

from the Calgary Sun via Slam,
So NHL fans in Denver, St. Louis, Detroit, Toronto and New York aren't too happy about the new CBA. Cry me a river. In years past, those teams spent and spent and spent like there was no tomorrow -- to the detriment of the league as a whole -- and are finally paying the piper. (In Colorado's defence, at least the Avs weren't constantly adding to their muscle by over-paying unrestricted free agents.) Colorado, and to a big extent Detroit, benefitted from strong drafting and trading over the last decade but never had to face the problems clubs like Calgary and Edmonton had: The knowledge those players brought along would eventually become too pricey to hang onto.
