the fact is and i'll say it again when superstar players speak out for contraction it makes guys who take up roster spots 16-23 worry about there jobs. this union is folding pretty fast. i don't think guys who make there living playing hockey want to here how great for the game contraction would be. when the players give up there fight in a a couple of weeks they can thank chris chelois and all the other players that spoke out for contraction. a really strong union yeah right!
when 6 out of 700 players say something the union is NOT folding fast...lets not exagarate
and contraction isn't an option anyway, only way teams are gone is if they fold...
and lastly the guys that would lose their jobs in that case shouldn't be in the league in the first place since they only got jobs due to overexpansion
and it also doesn't change the fact that bettman overexpanded, put teams into markets that couldn't support them and the owners are too stupid to run their own franchises...the owners are responsible for all the problems and the owners could solve the problems with or without the cap by using some self control
