Wil the owners Budge

John Davidson on Vancouver radio said there is some talk, about the league maybe offering another proposal but it will not be much different than what they have been. He also feels the lower earning teams are driving the bus and it is wrong. The eight in partnership with Bettman are not budging at all and want exactly what Bettman is offering.
JD also noted the proposal the NHLPA is offering, the top teams would make at the minimum of 40 million dollars. Davidson noted why can't the lower owners find a way to make money too. Good example is the Blackhawks, Wirtz has a lot of money but doing a rotten job of selling their game, as a matter of fact, the Blackhawks don't even televise home games.
