    NHLPA Proposal

    "Part of the NHLPA's proposal allows for Bettman to arbitrarily assign the #1 pick in the draft to a financially distressed team."

    This is awful.

    Nailed it.


    However if that rule is added, that's literally the stupidest thing in all of sports.

    It's Ecklund. While I think he has some sources, as he's been right some of the time, I think he's a classic spaghetti thrower. The second he "hears" something, he posts about it. More than likely, it's a lot of unsubstantiated stuff. Which is why half of his stuff if just bizarre, off the walls stuff. I don't doubt teams talk a lot of crazy scenarios. Ever play a fantasy sport? My god, the crazy trades people talk about but never come close to pulling the trigger on. Ever play a re-draft on here? They get crazier.

    While the NHLPA may have proposed that....theres equally as likely of a chance they did not propose that. And honestly, that sounds like something that the NHLPA wouldn't even bother bringing up seriously right now considering the root of the issue seems to be revenue sharing, salary cap floor/ceiling and revenue percentages, so I side on the half of the fence of "unlikely scenarios".

    If a team is in that situation where they have to be handed the #1 pick, even though they're not the worst team in the league....Why keep a hockey team in that city? If they cannot produce a profit with the product they're putting on the ice move it to a city that wants a hockey team....

    I'm assuming Nashville is coming to mind because they practically bankrupted themselves for the next 2 years with Shea Weber's new contract?

    End of the day who knows? But I have a hard time believing that the players would put a rule like that in place. Might be one of the dumbest rules I've ever heard of.

    Eklund should write for people magazine. Just make stuff up. I am very doubtful of this. Until I see it from a legit source (bob mckenzie) I won't believe it

    crosby was already given to the penguins and the panthers were screwed so why should they change it?
