Time’s come for No Honor League
Look, everyone needs to understand that it’s all within context. NHL players could have their pay slashed by 50 percent and lead marvelous lives. We get that. But at the same time there isn’t an owner extant who had the slightest need to take so much as an...

NHL labor in crunch time
The ultimate round of bargaining between the NHL and NHLPA will continue this weekend as the players craft a counter-proposal to the league’s latest offer, presented to the union late Thursday. The parties will conduct a conference call today in anticipation of a meeting in Manhattan tomorrow, with these...

Players vote to remove union from talks
Now the players have a big stick to wave at the NHL owners. In voting that ended yesterday, sources say the Players Association rank-and-file voted overwhelming to authorize — without requiring — its executive committee to file a “disclaimer of interest” which would remove the union from negotiations with the NHL. If...

NHL fears Fehr itself
This was Dec. 6, when Canceler-in-Chief Gary Bettman and deputy Bill (The Hill) Daly delivered their Angry Men standup routine at a press conference after a group of players had the temerity not to sign on the dotted line even after a handful of owners all but directed them to...

NHL owners take it to court
The fourth month of NHL Owners’ Lockout III begins at midnight tonight with the league taking the increasingly bitter battle to the courts, launching another time-consuming gyration. The NHL reacted with lawsuits to the news the players plan to vote next week on authorizing the possible end of the role...

NHL puts stale in stalemate
The NHL’s peculiar approach to collective bargaining yielded predicable results yesterday when the league neither met collectively with the NHLPA nor bargained with the union. A second straight day of mediation, this one featuring executive director Don Fehr and counsel Steve Fehr for the NHLPA and Proskauer Rose counsel...

No face-to-face; no NHL progress
The closer they get, the harder each side claws for every little million in NHL Owners’ Lockout III. About all yesterday’s six-hour mediated session between the league and the Players Association accomplished was to give the NHL protection against unfair labor practices claims, since it did agree to the...

Players need to try amnesty
The owners are on emphatic record they will not authorize amnesty buyouts as part of an NHL transition to a 50/50 system in which the cap would decrease from a bookkeeping $70.2 million this year (should a 2012-13 season be played) to $60 million in 2013-14, a drop...

All quiet on NHL labor front
The NHL today may cancel another chunk of its schedule, but it still hasn’t scheduled the next bargaining session with the Players Association to end Owners’ Lockout III, now in Day 86. NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly confirmed last night no talks are yet slated with the union after...

Fehr factor to NHL tactic
Do NOT mistake this recess in bargaining orchestrated by the NHL after the league’s third outright walkaway from talks in the last two months as anything other than what it is intended by the owners and the suits on Sixth Avenue. For this is not a “cooling off” period...

Third NHL lockout shows league needs a commissioner free from owners’ control
It was 20 years ago we first proposed the creation of an NHL commissioner. But not like this. Exactly not like this. The, ahem, brainstorm came in the wake of the 11-day April 1992 players’ strike. That was the one that the late, great Roger Neilson was blamed (along with...

Hypocritical owners face players today
On Sept. 15, the day before Owners’ Lockout III commenced, the Jets signed Evander Kane to a six-year, $31.5 million contract that begins with a $3 million salary for one year, increases to $4.5 million the next year and then settles at $4 million for each of the...

Dolan ‘locked’ out of NHL talks
So Rangers owner James Dolan will not attend tomorrow afternoon’s NHL owners-players meeting in Manhattan, but the Bruins’ Jeremy Jacobs will. And what else does anyone need to know about Canceler-in-Chief Gary Bettman’s agenda as Lockout III enters Day 94? The meeting that will he held within a...
