Didn't you know the NHLPA uses some sort of Jedi mind trick on the owners?


I dont think you'll find one person to say the players aren't overpaid. But it shouldn't be the players responsibility to save the owners from themselves. It's as simple as that. The only reason the NHL owners lost 300 million dollars last year is alot of owners spent more than they could afford. I think we've seen lately how important payroll means in terms of winning the Cup or even advancing far in the playoffs. (note the sarcasm)

If a dope like myself can balance a checkbook why cant NHL owners?
