the line: "players want to play" was in reference to why Comrie came to camp prior to being locked out.
all players are members of the NHLPA and are not going to cross their union brothers. anyone who's worked in a union environment knows that. of course players know the business otherwise they'd be playing in the local beer league but the PA and agents are truly pulling the strings. it's in their best interest for all players to get the highest salary they can.
it's easy to assume Comrie is in the wrong and should be happy to take whatever Lowe is offering. but in reality no one (but Lowe and Winter) knows what has been offered.
