Sounds like the more militant of the Owners (ie. Boston) are going on a campaign for some "Union Busting."
Doesn't look good folks.
Amazing as it is, all that these guys need to do, is continue finding ways to make each other rich.
Can't say how I'd feel about the NHL after a year and a half off.
Could send me down another path.
How about the players making themselves rich? Sure, they take what the stupid owners give them. But, let's face it, with the likes of Martin LaPointe, a nice player to be sure, making 5 mil a year, and you and I paying ridiculous prices for seats to see this superstar, don't you think there should be radical changes?
