Why should the players give back money that owners agreed to pay them in the first place? I think they are being rather generous to offer a 5% roll back on salaries being that it is a binding contract, if the owners were to come up to guys in the middle of the season and tell them they weren't going to pay them 5% of their paycheck, there would be hellfire and damnnation.

Maybe the owners, who for 4 years knew this day was coming, should have just said "no thank you" to the high priced players. Maybe they would have spent less money putting together a team (Minnesota, Calgary) instead of a good collection of players (Rangers, Washington)
