The players want a deal for themselves. That's it. It won't help the fans, and salaries will continue to increase to where they don't deserve to be. They're suffering from Al MacInnis syndrome. Just because pro atheletes in other sports make trillions a year doesn't mean they do. And there are very clear reasons for that.
Do you work for a living? Do you have a job? I own my own business and pay my employees a decent wage and could never, ever sit down with them when negotiating their salaries and state to them with a straight face that due to my own stupidity I'm not making enough money and want to impose a cap on their wages - which is exactly what the NHL owners are doing.

You want a salary cap? Well, a profit cap is just as justified.
