But compared to your wages at the time, I am sure your $55 a week was a larger percentage than is $10,000 a month for most hockey players.
For a union comprised of wealthy men as is the NHLPA it only makes sense that they would have a strike fund to help their members meet expenses in a lockout situation, there is nothing sinister or underhanded about this.
As you yourself tell us, eye, your union gave a stipend for your strike. This is not even a strike by the NHLPA but a refusal by the team owners to allow the players to work (for the NHL), even more reason for the union brethern to recieve some sort of compensation.
