    If this is the crap we have to deal with maybe we need to look at the big picture hear and fire the head guys of the nhl and put a whole new team in there. As these blow holes get richer the poor still have to watch a damn game at home because we cant aford to go to a game cause of how much the bamn tickets are so it can pay for his salery…..BS!

  2. Wow, you really don’t know very much. Fire “the head guys of the NHL”? You mean the owners? Doesn’t really work that way, they own the franchises they are not employees. They hired Bettman (and he hired Daly) to handle the negotiations. If you want them to¬† fire Bettman/Daly, why would they? He gets them (the owners) exactly what they want.

    The owners will win, it’s Billionaires vs. Millionaires…who do you think could hold out longer!? The players should realize they won’t win, and work on a countering the NHL’s proposal. Not try to tell the owners how to run their businesses (increased revenue sharing), that doesn’t really go over well. Don’t think so? Go and tell your boss how to run his company, see what he says. I get it, the players don’t want to get screwed again, but they will have to come to grips that they will take a pay cut (probably lower than is currently on the table: 17.5%), and also some concessions on contract issues. They need to accept this if they want to play any games this year (or even next).

    It’s the sad truth of the world, the ones with the money, get to decide how to spend it.
