Ever since the start of this crazy lockout I always felt there was more to the league's stance then just the hockey-related revenue. Although getting to a 50/50 split is a pretty big chuck of change that the players will go without, it is just dollars and cents. It isn't a systemic issue. The money can be divided up.
After sifting through the tea leaves of all the talk the past week from both sides it is clear to me there are systemic issues. Here are the NHL's big four.

Theo Peckham has signed in the ECHL with San Francisco. This is a great move by him, a solid decision. He will get to play a ton of minutes in many different situations. It is just what he needs.

Last week on The Jason Strudwick Show, Mitch Moroz joined me for an interview. I was really looking forward to having him on. Having only met him once I didn't know him very well. I always got the sense he was a guy with some personality and wouldn't be afraid to show some of it!

In the 1980s the Islanders and Oilers were the gold standard for the NHL. They were winning Stanley Cups and their buildings were not outdated. Nassau Coliseum was built in 1972 and Rexall Place in 1974. Since both teams last won Stanley Cups neither has had much success. For a while now both organizations have been in a struggle to get new arenas to play in.
