just playing the devil's advocate here.
the difference is that the owner and the league need to have the players on the ice for that money to be made. NOT SO for unions. They enventually need to have them play, but meanwhile carreers and lives are being ruined. Your at the most crushial time of your hockey carreer, it's a make or break, and you only have a very, very short time to prove yourself. You can't afford and don't have the time to play business, with unions and politics.
