Mike Knuble turned 40 in July and he’s an unrestricted free agent. He’s coming off a rough season, but still wants to continue his NHL career.
Knuble, in an MLive.com report, said that he does think that the labor situation has left his contract situation in “limbo” until a new CBA is signed. Unfortunately, that means he might be waiting for a very long time.
“My own opinion is it’s going to be awhile because they’re not even close to being on the same page,” Knuble said. “I think the issues are different than the last time … and now there are a lot of revenues out there and they’re trying to figure out how to split it the right way.
“(The league’s) take is look what just happened in basketball and football. And the players say, well, look at baseball. They don’t have a salary cap and they’re just fine. So, it’s going to be a he said, she said and go back and forth.”
