It prompted the question: Is the NHL blockbuster deal, alive and well, after all? And if so, can we expect to see more of the same this season?

His not-so-sympathetic answer was to laugh and say: Get used to it. His message was that in the second year of the new collective bargaining agreement, general managers had a much better sense of how to run their businesses — and more and more were turning to that long-established bastion of the salary-cap world, the National Football League, for guidance.more On a side note, the Doc told me I do have the flu, get rest and try to recover. I am going to take him up on the "rest" part- will try to update throughout the day but don't count on it. I need some sleep badly.
