Kick ass!

6-yr CBA
- a hard team-by-team <b>salary cap</b> with a payroll of range of $21 million to $39 million (in the first year), which includes all player costs (benefits, insurance etc).

- the league's total expenditure on player costs (salaries, bonuses, benefits and insurance) is not permitted to exceed 54 per cent of defined hockey-related revenue and the salary cap and payroll range will move up or down as revenues increase or decrease each year of the deal.

- a 24 per-cent salary rollback for any NHL player who has time remaining on an existing contract, keeping in mind that the players will receive none of the monies they were slated to earn in the lost season of 2004-05.

- liberalized free agency (including unrestricted status at 27 by year four of the deal), a more restrictive entry level system, totally revamped salary arbitration, improved pension benefits and a revenue-sharing plan.
NHL is getting smart... this is a solid foundation modeled a bit after the NFL.

Good for Sidney Crosby & the NHL that he might not end up in Pittsburgh or Chicago or Carolina. The NHL needs to rig it so a big US market (not Chicago) gets the first chance at him. Seriously.

I don't see what having played hockey has anything to do with knowing if you like it or not. To me that just seems like a pretty poor attemt as to explain/attack the vast majority in this country that couldn't care less about hockey. Have I played hockey? No. Not exactly your everyday sport offered where I grew up. But I've seen enough of it to know that I don't like it.

Hockey to me is just one of those sports that doesn’t make me say "wow what an unbelievable athletic move". IMO the excitement isn't there.

When Dante jukes 2 defenders on his way for a touchdown, that's one of those moments, when Lebron James elevates over sombody and slams it home, that's one of those moments.

I find it funny that you mention a juke by Dante Hall, while almost as exciting ones are made in hockey all the time. Normally most peoples issue with Hockey seems to be the low scoring. Personally I get not enjoyment from the NBA at all anymore. Just turn the game on in the 4th quarter after the refs decide to equal out the game again and watch the last two minutes take a lifetime...

If they don't find ways to speed up the game, like cracking down on holding/hooking, banning the trap, taking out the red line, etc; then the only thing a salary cap will do is make for mediocre & even lower scoring hockey, which is bound to turn off the average fan.

There were teams with 25 ties/OTL last year.... but let's spread out the talent more, and strive for 50%!

Changes in store when NHL returns (http://www.newsday.com/sports/hockey/rangers/ny-spchanges0714,0,1546718.story?coll=ny-rangers-bigpix)

July 13, 2005

When the NHL returns, as expected, from its 10-month lockout in October, plenty will have changed. After cancelling the 2004-05 season, skipping the 2005 entry draft, and missing a full year of free agent shopping, the league and its 30 teams will look drastically different.

Here's an outline of what will or may happen:

-- Smaller goalies: The NHL players and owners have already agreed to shrink the size of goaltender equipment whenever the league gets back on ice. The width of goalie pads will be reduced from 12 to 11 inches. Blockers, gloves and shoulder pads will be held to stricter standards. Goalies will also be required to wear form-fitting uniforms that compact their upper-body gear more.

-- Overtime shootouts: Desperate to reduce the number of wearisome tie games, the NHL instituted four-on-four overtimes six years ago, with one point awarded to the loser and two points awarded to the winner. However, the league wasn't thrilled with the results, and now it seems likely that shootouts will be used to decide regular-season games that remain tied after a five-minute overtime. Playoff games would still be decided in 20-minute, sudden-death overtime periods.

-- No goaltender puckhandling: Prior to the lockout, the NHL's board of governors approved a rule that would prevent goalies from handling the puck outside of a prescribed area behind the crease. The idea is that it would allow for more creative flow and pressure in the offensive zone.

-- Bigger nets: The NHL's new rules committee has experimented with the idea of new, curved goals that will give shooters 13 percent more room to score. The new nets are one of a number of rules changes the NHL is mulling. Also under consideration: Removal of the center red line, widening of the blue lines, and the return of tag-up offsides.

-- Sidney Crosby: The 17-year-old Junior forward who Wayne Gretzky himself declared the NHL's next great star wasn't selected in the NHL draft this summer because, well, there wasn't one. Now, Crosby may be available to all 30 teams, depending on how the league structures its draft lottery. One theory suggested that teams would be given a weighted opportunity to win the first pick based on their cumulative record over the past three seasons, but the prevailing notion now seems to be that all 30 teams will have equal shot at drafting Crosby.

-- Free agent frenzy: Although salaries will never approach the levels they hit during the NHL's pre-cap era, owners will be forced to sign dozens of free agents once the lockout ends. That's because more than 60 percent of the league's players are eligible for free agency following a full year of inactivity. Further adding to the confusion, it's believed that the new CBA will allow for teams to buy out existing contracts, adding more big names to the free agent pool. All this means that many teams will have entirely different rosters when play resumes in 2005-06.

Why is everyone compelled to go through the "I don't care" on every single hockey thread? We don't care that you don't care, and we don't even care if you know that we don't care about you not caring, so I don't see why you care so much about telling us that you don't care.

To me, it's like deciding a football game by a field goal kicking contest. I wouldn't be so opposed to it if they had a full OT first.



99% of the problems on the ice can be solved by not tinkering with the actual game.... reducing the goalie's pads & cracking down on the rules that are already there. That's it. Personally, I like the international game & college game more than the NHL, so I think no red line and a larger sheet of ice could add some excitement. Besides that, stuff like not letting the goalie out of the crease is a freakin' gimmick, and they would be condoning one of the things that slows the game down -- constantly dumping the puck in and fighting for it in the corners.

Predarat
07-14-2005, 11:53 AM
I like the idea of shootouts but only after one or two overtimes. But they need to keep the number of shootouts down somewhat so they dont get old. They are very exciting, especially at first! I think instead of not letting the goalie out of the crease they should make them fair game. That would be cool to see a goalie get slammed into the boards and the resulting events!

[QUOTE=Bearcat]To me, it's like deciding a football game by a field goal kicking contest. I wouldn't be so opposed to it if they had a full OT first.

I might agree with that one, but they HAVE to have at least one OT for regular season games!

Eliminate offsides please NHL!!!

-- constantly dumping the puck in and fighting for it in the corners.

The grinding in the corners is very cool, to me that is, but there are WAY too many fouls called for stupid shit like offsides.

Can't say I understand how this will speed up the game. To counter any "creative flow and pressure" the opposing team is simply going to hold back the defensemen to do the puck handling until it's out of the zone.

There's a much better chance of a goalie fumbling the puck for a goal than any defenseman in the league turning it over.

You've never seen guys like Kasparitis or Konstantinov blow people up with a solid hit in the middle of the rink. Apparently you haven't seen guys like Probert and McSorley throw about 30 punches each in 60 seconds in a haymaker.Apparently not. ROFL :thumb:

Tough place to be a Redwing fan. That's like being a Chiefs fan while living in Oakland.I live 40 miles from Oakland, but yeah, its hell come September.

Why is everyone compelled to go through the "I don't care" on every single hockey thread? We don't care that you don't care, and we don't even care if you know that we don't care about you not caring, so I don't see why you care so much about telling us that you don't care.

Because we're post whores, and since to don't have anything of merit to add, to only way to satiate our need to post is to post "I don't care".

Does that help? :p

Isn't hockey nothing more than soccer on ice skates.

Hockey is more like Lacrosse on skates.

I'd probably like soccer if they didn't handicap the game by not allowing players to touch the ball with their hands and arms. :shake:
