So here we go, a serious break from depressing Canes analysis...
So below is a link to a fellow SBNation blog, which discusses an interesting story. Turns out that NHL teams may have been under-reporting revenue, and the NHLPA is just catching on. This of course is a big deal since the salary cap, and thus player income, is tied directly to hockey revenue. After all, none of us buy tickets to watch Karmanos skate around the RBC Center.
Now, while the argument can certainly be made that NHL players, like all pro athletes, are overpaid, the fact is they are the ones who bring in the fans, and therefore the money. The NHL owners trying to screw the NHL players isn't cool. Obviously this isn't the bad old days, like when Howe was given a second hand fur coat for a signing bonus, but this is nonetheless interesting.
