    There has been a lot of talk about the top UFA's not being signed yet because of the CBA. Anyone have any details of what's going on. Is it simply bonus cap space increasing? Is there a new Agreement going into place? Is it just a new year in the old one?

    I think players maybe holding out on signing a multi year deal if the terms could be better for next year. Maybe there is hope that a new deal gets signed before the start of this season.

    I know the current agreement goes through 2020, but there's been a few indications on Twitter the last few days that current negotiations for a new deal aren't going so well. I've found several players have made some mildly veiled comments about it over the last week or so and today O'Brien seems to basically call bullshit on the current negotiations.

    Very predictable and expected.

    This league probably can’t survive a strike, unless it’s quick like the one in 2007.

    wonder if Nicky Sak will have enough in the sack to threaten to use replacement players. I think that batch of strife was just about the end of poor Jennings :D.

    Anyway, still to be sorted out, with rapid expansion happening, stakes are as high as they have ever been.

    Here's to a slanderous game of liars' poker, and, here's to both sides leaving the table with something they can live with.
