Esposito doesn't agree with players
 
Phil Esposito Speaks out, against the Players!

"Well, for the first time in my lifetime, I don't agree with the players," Esposito said Tuesday. "I think they're wrong this time. It's the first time, ever, that I ever thought the players were wrong. And this time I just do not understand what the big deal is with a salary cap. I just don't understand it."

You have to take with a grain of salt the words of former-players-turned-management. What's interesting to me are those voices who are normally pro-player but are now lining up on the side of management. Fischler and Brender both have op-ed pieces in this month's THN. Both spell out their general support for players and their issues, but both go on to say why they back management this time around.

Hey, anytime anyone talks about something going on in hockey, it's gonna be the top story on TSN, thats a given. Especially when that someone has the name Esposito.

Not true...if ex owner steve blanks saids he doesnt support what the owners are doing and its the wrong move, TSN wouldnt post it. Sportsnet probably would in there little section of "other hockey news".

He's just bitter that he never got to make the kind of money that today's players make.

Balej20* 01-18-2005 09:20 PM

he's always supported the players side of things, no matter what the situation.
