The only thing preventing a deal getting done is the players greed.
Then the onus should be on the owners for spending their money wisely. Why should the players care? The owners are the ones who are paying the players the money.

The NHL's losing money problems lie much deeper than giving guys like Martin Lapointe $5 million a year.
