seeing all these huge lifetime contracts...have these owners never heard of Bobby Bonnea (sp) who has not played in decades, but gets a million dollars every year.

To me, the NHL has the best salary system. They have both a salary floor and a hard cap where a player can receive no more than 20% of the salary cap number and a follow-on contract can be no longer than 7 or 8 years depending on the player's eligibility. This helps spread the money around and still ensures the top stars get paid. Min and max salaries have increased every year since the salary cap/floor was implemented. Entry level contracts are all exactly the same. All contracts are guaranteed as well.

MLB owners and MLBPA would do well to use the NHL/NHLPA contract as a template for their upcoming CBA negotiations.
