Ole Puppet Head stated that the NHL is firm that in the new CBA there will be no contracts longer than 5yrs, yet GM's ( Oilers being the latest one), are signing players to 6 and 7 year contracts. Talk about Owners & GM's not being on the same page and also bargining in bad faith. This seson will never start on time I'm afraid.
Owners and Their GM's

I don't want to support either side right now, but as long as owners and management give out these type of contracts and act so irresponsible, what are the players supposed to do? The Wild's owner says in April that the sport can't continue to operate under these conditions and 2 months later he signs 2 players for $200 million and 20 years. Hard to figure them out.
