Many of the players have said their part in the wake of the NHL shooting down their three proposals but one thing seemed to be their big talking point today.
“As players we know we tabled a great deal today,” Toews said. “Our biggest concern is obviously that our contracts continue to be honored as we progressively make our way to a 50-50 split between the league and the players.”
It sounds reasonable enough that the players would want to get what they’ve already agreed to. After all, it’s not as if owners were reluctant to sign players ahead of the lockout. The problem is getting the math to work out to make it happen.
ESPN.com’s Pierre Lebrun believes both sides can figure it out if they work at it. Talking it out and figuring out, however, doesn’t exactly look like it’ll happen right away.
