Labor strife


In a perfect world, the NHL would be the only game in town on July 1, 2011, after reading this gem from the NBA players union chief: Lockout time

The NFL may also be out for the 2011-12 season, as has been discussed in a few threads on MHH before. The key to that is the $500M the NFL owners will earn from TV deals without their teams playing a single down if they lock out the players.

Meanwhile, while this all looks great for the NHL, the worst news that could possibly happen comes down the pipe. Donald Fehr, the mastermind of the death of the 1994 World Series and likely the largest nail in the Montreal Expos' coffin, is getting involved in the NHL's own labor negotiations. Fehr is merciless, heartless and evil, making him the perfect union boss. If the NHL is expecting to lower the salary cap (or make any adjustments, for that matter) this is the one roadblock they didn't want to see. I'm curious what many of you think will happen with the NHL's labor negotiations and if the league with a 100% accuracy rate when shooting itself in the foot would have the stupidity to do it again.
