Welcome back NHL. #gameon. Do you care?
I suppose I’ll watch the game(s) this weekend since the World Juniors didn’t do anything for me recently but now the new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) has been signed, I have to ask, what was all the fuss all about?
I mean c’mon…it took the billionaires and multimillionaires 4 months to agree to share revenues 50%-50%?
The rich players couldn’t decide in an afternoon if they wanted a new defined benefit pension plan?
It was difficult decision to retain a health and safety committee?
Oh, let’s not forget, it took some time to figure out illegal substances like stimulants and amphetamines should be prohibited from the league.
I love NHL hockey, I’m glad its back but the drama was painful and the process to the new CBA was idiotic.
Leading off this Weekend Reading list, Dan Bortolotti from Canadian Couch Potato is starting a new partnership with the fine folks at PWL Capital Inc. Dan wrote:
“I am pleased to announce that I have partnered with PWL Advisors in Toronto to offer a unique service for DIY index investors. For a flat fee, budding Couch Potatoes can now work with me and two licensed advisors—Justin Bender and Shannon Dalziel—to design and implement an ETF portfolio at a discount brokerage.”
Kudos to Dan and PWL for this partnership…I suspect they’ll have many customers.
