...meanwhile in Switzerland:
While enjoying some real NHL-top-shots, like Thornton, Nash, Bergeron, Spezza and Seguin (playing with my hometown-team EHC Biel), I'm wondering about two points:
- How come that NHLers play here in europe almost for free, are making an issue (in the NHL) out of getting like only 5mil a year instead of 6? heck, they play for appartment, food and car only (no salary at all!) over here! Yeah I know, it's like season-preparation for them, but it sill might be that the lock-out is for the whole season...
- I read somewhere, that the new cba-proposal of the owner is for a duration of 6 years only?! why aren't they making a deal of 10 years at least? why not something like 20 years? If the deal is done for 6 years, I am sure that after those 6 years, there will be another lock-out again.
going to bed now, watching some cards playoff-game, nice HR btw :D
