With the NHL and NHLPA negotiating a new CBA, The Bread Man decided to share some opinions about NHL owners’ bread. (I’m sorry.)
“I have concerns not only about the health of players and their families but also about the long term prosperity of the NHL,” Artemi Panarin wrote. “For nearly two decades, the Players have protected the owners income with escrow, including throughout this pandemic crisis, even as owners’ equity continues to grow exponentially. It is time to fix the escrow.”
After signing a seven-year, $81.5 million contract over the summer, Panarin set career highs in goals (32), assists (63), and points (95) and could be a finalist for the Hart Trophy as the NHL MVP.
