Maixme Dumont's insight:

The hockey players should not be paid for this big event because it's pretty unfair with the rest of the league and also the league doesn't make revenues out of this event, it is the host contry that received everything.

It's impossible to say for sure how current low-revenue teams like the Coyotes, Panthers, Predators, and Blue Jackets will fare in the next few years.

Maixme Dumont's insight:

In 2013, the NHL signed a new contract agrements for broadcast with Rogers for over $5 billions in U.S dollars. This new contract will grow the revenues which will made grow the salaries of the players. We think this is a great opportunity for the league and the players to makes more money. With this big amount, the goverment of the NHL can  subsidise the poor organization like the Pheonix Coyotes.

Players, owners to keep talking as hope rises for NHL labor deal | SI.com | Salaries in hockey | Scoop.it
NEW YORK (AP) -- Negotiations between hockey owners and players are going so well that NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says he's "pleased with the process" - even if he has been left outside the latest rounds of discussions.

 

As you may already know, the NHL is going through another lockout. The last one took place in the season of 2005 which made it the first professional club to cancel a whole season in North America. The reason the board of directors of the NHL and the players are at a lockout is for the terms of salary percentages and insurance benefits. It seems silly to think about such things since most professional athletes are making pretty decent money for anyone. Most don’t understand they could live off less than what they do because they have become so accustomed to receiving the money they have in past. The last times the NHL came to terms with the players was at the end of the non-existent 2005 season. The agreement then ended in September of this year and is now being rewritten again.

 

It seems that the NHL and players recently have been much more optimistic than they ever have been. The agreement is starting to come together smoothly although, there is still much to talk about. The NHL has been seeing the other side of the spectrum a little more clearly and been more understanding towards the player and their conditions. The NHL players have also let go of the reigns a little as they are starting to see the realistic side of their demands. It’s important for the NHL owners to see the players as the image of their face though.

 

In the book, Public Relations Practices, it says that the most important people in an organization are the front-liners (28). That would be the players themselves as they are essentially the entertainers or performers. The book also says, “They make the product, deliver the service, sell the goods, and provide essential support mechanisms. In short, they more than anyone are the organization (28).” This is very true especially in the professional sports world. So, it is important to make sure that the NHL players are also having their needs met since they are the stars of the show. It’s true that if the front-liners of an organization are satisfied then it will be the baseline for providing satisfaction throughout the entire organization. When the players believe in what they are doing it is easier for them to bring more to the plate every time they play. This is true in the business world as well. Usually when an employee feels they are an important part of the company and are getting paid the way they should then they tend to yield more success in the field.

Maixme Dumont's insight:

We believe that players have the right to obtain a 50-50 revenue sharing with the owners, since they are the ones who make money for the owners. So it's normal that they get at least the same revenues that owners.

NHL Salary Cap to Increase to $71 M in 2014-15 - Sport Balla | Salaries in hockey | Scoop.it

Maixme Dumont's insight:

A new salary cap is now established in the NHL for the next season. This amount is a new record which is $71M. The reason why the players had a bigger salaries is because the league made more revenues and they need to shared it with players following the contract of revenues sharing.For us, players had a bigger motivation for playing and the hockey level will necessarily increase. It's also a very good news for all the cities because they will make great revenues with advertising and partisans. This will drive the economy.
