But it is those pluggers that will be squeezed out of the league with Bettman's cap. The stars and other top 2 liners & top 4 defensemen will still get their money. It is the bottom 6 forwards and last 2 defensemen types that will get replaced when it is time to look how to save money so that a teams' top players will get paid.
They can say what they want. Fact is, the are only speeding their own way into an NHL grave.
