That's the insidious nature of the escrow-enforced triple cap system. It pits player against player, teammate against teammate, those under long-term contracts against those about to hit the market.

>>Larry Brooks, being his usual CBA=Sky is Falling self. Ironically, the point of his article is right: The players should enact the escalator and hope revenues grow to limit their escrow payments. But it's a joke for Brooks to pretend this mechanism has an "insidious nature" rather than, well, the nature of collectively bargained contracts: You sacrifice some individual choice when times are good for you in exchange for some individual (and collective) security when times are bad. That's why people form unions.

"It was beyond a surprise. It was a complete shock," Shanahan said. "I still don't know a lot about. I don't know enough. I want to learn more." "... I don't know why this needed to be done so hastily," Shanahan said. "In less than two weeks we're going to have 700 players in training camp. When things are done that quickly, it makes me nervous. I don't know what the need was to do it now."

"They did the right thing this year by advancing funds and infusing money to keep [the Coyotes] going, and it is good for the players and good for the league. At this point you need someone who can stand alone and handle the financial consequences."

>>NHLPA head Paul Kelly discussing the Balsillie Coyotes bid in a very interesting CBC Sports article on the situation. Just thought it relevant given our last "wonder what the NHLPA thinks" post.
