    Difference.. Management didn't want Hull around (at least Q didn't).. They do want Pronger around.
    From that standpoint, yes, you are correct...

    From a financial standpoint, for an organization that's looking to cut salary, nothing will surprise me...but I 'think' he'll be qualified...

    June or July will tell the tale.

    If nobody is signed, the fix is in.
    Which actually puts the Blues in a bind to sign Pronger... I think they'll do it.. Just b/c they'd be seen as morons for letting him walk.. But it still puts them in a tough spot, somewhat.

    I don't understand why they made the CBA expire in September. That expiration date wasn't because of the World Cup; it was decided upon when Bettman decided to extend this CBA in 1998.

    The NHL now is going to have to sign players in the offseason even though they have no idea what the financial future of the league will be when these players finally play a game for their teams. If they don't, you can bet the NHLPA will follow the 1980s lead of the MLBPA and claim collusion.

    Why does the CBA end in September and not right after this season?
    World Cup of Hockey would be my guess....

    Though it'll suck to not have hockey... It'll be worth it to miss a season or two if they can fix it.. I just hope they don't go a long time and then the owners cave.
    I wouldn't count on the owners to cave...it'll be the NHLPA b/c they really don't have a choice...

    There'll be some significant downtime for hockey and some NHL execs fell it will be @ least a year...it won't fold the entire league, but instead of contraction, the NHL will likely 'let' a few franchises die...the strategy is sorta a 'survival of the fittest' deal....
