I agree with the lock-out, I hate missing hockey but if it fixes the situation then I'll wait. I'm just hoping more players like Madden stand up and say something and that the owners will stay united in their stance.
Also, maybe you're new to this process but in the 224M$ losses

6 teams had 168M$ of those 224M$, can you say it's CBA issues ? Even the STL Blues didn't care about the losses. What's the problem if the owner want to spend this & does not care of the losses ?

that means 14 teams for 56M$ = 4M$ per team !! Can we say that 4M$ is not suppose to be an issue to make a 1 year lockout ? I don't think so.
