NHL Labor Woes

On a slightly different note ...

The NHL is having its own labor woes. After a lockout shortened the 1994-5 season to just half a season, they parties are back at it this year. The players refuse the league's demand of a salary cap. NHL players earn 76% of revenues in salary, higher than any other major sporting league in the US. The latest talks today went nowhere, the AP reports.

(There are three NHL teams in California. The San Jose Sharks, Western Conference Finalists in 2003-4, the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, Western Conference Champions in 2002-3, and the Los Angeles Kings.)
