for hockey this season. last week, the nhl players association offered an extremely serious proposal that included a 24% salary rollback through all existing contracts. this is super fantastic news, since its a progressive enough proposal that the league is actually taking it seriously. they are supposed to respond on tuesday with a counter proposal. keep your fingers crossed. the all-star game has already been cancelled, but now that football is winding down, it sure would be stellar to have the sport i actually want to watch dominating our concentration.
