1) How about that salary cap keeping those out of control player salaries where they need to be? LOL
2) The big spenders are back! The next lockout is NOW inevitable! You can bet the ranch on that one folks! Next target? Guarenteed contracts!

Niedermayer is mostly likely going to retire and wanted to give Burke the heads up so he wouldn't miss out on Schneider.

He's won everything out there anyway, so he should go save the environment and give other guys and chance at some trophies.
