  NHL Collective Bargaining Agreement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The NHL collective bargaining agreement is the basic contract between the National Hockey League (NHL) team owners and the NHL Players Association (NHLPA), designed to be arrived at through the typical labour-management negotiations of collective bargaining.
The most recent agreement, tentatively reached on July 13, 2005 after a labor dispute which caused the cancellation of the 2004-05 season, was ratified by the NHLPA membership on July 21 and by the league's Board of Governors on July 22.
On the expiration date of the old agreement, the NHL Board of Governors, representing ownership, met and unanimously decided that the 2004-05 NHL season would be delayed until a new collective bargaining agreement is signed into place.

The NHL cancelled the 2004-2005 season in an effort to resolve the issue of competitive balance and change the financial health of the league.
First, as NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman stated, "… revenues will be at an all-time high for this league…" As we argue in The Wages of Wins, labor disputes have not been found to harm league attendance.
Clearly, though the average NHL team has improved its financial picture, and in the end, that is the real bottom line on the NHL’s cancelled season.

 Free agent - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The exception is Spain, where all professional players have a "buy-out clause" written into their contract and can therefore move without their club's agreement.
As in the US the number of transfers involving a fee are on the decline as clubs can now wait for their targets to see out their contracts and move "on a free".
For example, under the current NHL Collective Bargaining Agreement, restricted free agents who do not sign contracts by December 1 of a given year will be ineligible to play in the NHL for the balance of that season.

When the NHL's current collective bargaining agreement was ratified last July, numerous hockey pundits proclaimed it to be an unequivocal victory for the league and the team owners.
It had been believed at the time of this agreement's ratification last July that arbitrators had to choose between the player's request and the team's offer, with no settling on a middle figure that guaranteed a raise for the player regardless of the decision.
It appears now that too many of the players' critics focussed on the wrong issues in their assessment of which side "won" the NHL's contentious labor war, neglecting to closely examine what the PA had negotiated for the players.
