ESCROW AN ISSUE TO WATCH? The GLOBE & MAIL’s David Shoalts writes under the header, “Escrow A Nasty Word To NHL Players.” When the NHLPA makes its first counterproposal to the owners, it will “likely want changes to the escrow system along with greater revenue sharing among the teams” (GLOBE & MAIL, 8/2).
KEEP IT SIMPLE: YAHOO SPORTS’ Ryan Lambert wrote of potential NHL lockout, "I honestly don't think there will even be one. And if there is one, I'm okay with it, because anyone is stupid enough to let it last for more than a few weeks.” Of the forthcoming NHLPA proposal, Lambert noted the “simplest proposal is pretty clear: Stick with this basic CBA, at least for a little while.” That is an option that “some have hinted at being possible, and would give everyone a significant amount of time to work toward a more workable long-term solution” (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 8/1).
