from Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News,
In the real world, the boss is the boss. Not happy with the boss? Find a way to make things work or look for another gig. In the NHL, the boss is the boss until players approach unrestricted free agency. And that’s when the boss stops calling the shots, and the player becomes the boss….
Unfortunately, it’s not going to change unless owners regain some leverage over players. There’s talk about including term limits on contracts under the next CBA. The issue was considered but pushed to the side during the lockout. No-trade clauses should be outlawed. The NFL-style franchise tag should be included. Teams should be able to negotiate extensions two years before a contract expires, not one.
Last night Elliotte Friedman of HNIC did another great inteview with Sabres owner Tom Golisano. You will get a pretty good picture of the way Golisano thinks and I recommend you watch it.
