Introducing CBA Appreciation

At the termination of the 2011-2012 NHL season, the NHL and NHLPA will begin negotiations on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. In an attempt to demonstrate some appreciation for the old CBA, which we have come to know and love since it was birthed in 2005, we’ll randomly take some passage from the 472 page document and paste it here without commentary or analysis.

Thank you, CBA. You made all of our dreams come true.

14.6 Spousal Airfare.

(a) A Player’s spouse (or Living Companion) and children will be entitled to a round-trip economy class flight between the city from which the Player was Assigned and the city to which he was Assigned, or

(b) In the alternative, and in the event the Player intends to relocate his family to the city to which he was Assigned, the Player’s spouse (or Living Companion) and children will be entitled to a round-trip economy class flight between the city from which the Player was Assigned and the city to which he was Assigned for the specific purpose of searching for suitable housing in the new Club’s city, and shall also be entitled to oneway economy class airfare for the purpose of actually relocating from the city from which he was Assigned to his new Club’s city.

  1. hmm, that cover’s spousal airfares, but what about spousal affairs? this is mainly in Dion Phaneuf’s interests I guess…
