To say giving back nearly a quarter of that is a trick is a slap in the face to every player that is willing to take the loss to get the NHL going again. If Bettman and Co. just ignore this, it will create a rift between players and owners that might be too big to bridge.
i just have a hard time respecting anything brooks writes. it seems to me he has an agenda againts bettman. (Yes TB i know TSN has an agenda againts the players)
