The owners made an offer to the NHLPA today (Wednesday) that included profit-sharing and pretty near forensic accounting to guarantee the profit-sharing. The union has rejected the offer.

"Yankee Premium" Updates

In 2005 I explored the "Yankee Premium, how much of the Yankee payroll reflected a revenue advantage relative to the rest of baseball and how much reflected the ability of NYY players to negotiate away the revenue advantage into their own pockets. Here's an update for 2009 salary data where I match Yankee players with players from other teams whose productivity are "in the neighborhood" of the Yankee. The question is, what is the pay rate of a comparable players in terms of production and freedom of movement. I'm not using any sophisticated matching technique, so there's plenty of room […]
