Sure the players want more money, but they didn't propose an insulting offer that guarantees a lock-out. Honestly, what would you have the players do; accept the owner's offer just so we can have hockey this year? That offer was a greedy disgrace of the negotiation process!
The could have atleast heard what the league was looking for they simply choose to do nothing.
