I applaud Madden, a true man of honor is a rare thing in these times.

However, you can bet Madden is in the minority. This is nothing new. There have been players just like Madden in 94 and people like you at the time saying it was the end of the world.

I don't mean any offense, but everything you are saying still applied 10 years ago under much shakier conditions for Goodenow.

Of all the people who have to fear for their job due to this conflict, he's way down the list. This is exactly what he is paid to do. He's there to be the face and looked like the cause of the problems for the NHLPA just like Bettmaan is there to look like an egomaniacal loner.

Both of these things are not true. But the owners and players are very happy when people think this is the case.
