This has been the concern all along. It is the reason imo that the players came in with such a friendly offer. They knew that the owners were seriously considering lock out plans prior to the start of this past season and that a lock out would be likely.

I believe that the NHLPA has positioned themselves to look like the more reasonable of the two parties and have made the owners look like they are simply being greedy. Now I am not saying that either side is perfectly right only that both sides knew that we would be where we are at this point in time prior to the end of this past season and that what we are seeing now is the sort of posturing that happens when people are preparing to actually fight.

Either way we will again be the pawns.
