Crosby owes the rest of the league nothing, maybe if the other players had the foresight to see that Crosby would be in this position they wouldn't treat him like trash. Maybe it's a minority of players that call him out, but it seemed to get out of hand this past season.

I don't recall him being called out or trashed in regard to his involvement in the NHLPA.

I think what he's saying is that it seemed as though the whole league went on a Crosby bash-fest when he came back last season. Accordingly, how the rest of the players in the league feel about Crosby's contract should rate somewhere just north of what we all feel about it, as far as he is concerned.

He should do whatever he considers to be in his best interests, and tell anyone who doesn't like it to go pound sand.

Dejan and Derek got into a debate about it last night. Dejan didn't understand how it made so many people angry. Having worked for a newspaper's web department though, I knew what he was talking about, but every time we did that it came with an ED Note.

Pens15 wrote:It absolutely IS different because of the cap. The cap makes it a zero sum game for the players. If Sid sets a higher bar for top end players, then the extra value they get comes right out of the pocket of the middle and lower tier players, whose interest Fehr is also supposed to be representing.

Under this context, his aim would be, through whatever means possible, to expand the pool of money that is allocated to player salaries. How that pie gets divided up is not so important.


EXACTLY!

The larger crosbys contract is the worse it is for the unions mid range and lower players (or more like 67% of the players union).

Shelly Anderson reports that Sid is still in LA, working out. Maybe he is staying for the kings parade.
She has a blurb in the PG about his contract. Ron Cook also has an article about Sid's contract.

57% for players is way too much, and Fehr won't let them concede anything


Why is 57% way too much for the players? I'm not sure what the % should be but in my mind the players, who are doing the work, drawing the crowds, selling the licensed products, etc should receive the majority of the "take". Power to the workers!

Agree. The players are the ones putting their lives on the line for sake of entertainment. I don't think 57% is really too much to ask for.

There would be no teams for these guys to play on if it wasn't for the ownsers fronting their money. They run the show behind the scenes, they ae the ones at risk of losing the money. It should be a clean 50/50 split.

The owners have other business investments that would/could more than make up for hockey losses. Like it was said, not like the owners are out there at risk for concussions and injuries that lessen quality of life.

I mean, look around at some of the owners. Mike Ilitch, Terry Pegula. They've all made their money elsewhere. Giving a little more to the players isn't going to bankrupt them.

What's politics have to do with the fact NHL owners have other sources of income outside the NHL?

50/50 split. Without one the other doesn't exist. As such, 50/50 but I could understand 55/45 players to owners.
