As far as who is at fault. Well, there is plenty of blame to go around. I think that 57% of HRR is too much for the players to be receiving. But, the owners really need to work with the PA on what is considered HRR in the first place. Bettman serves the owners, and if they didn't like what he was doing, he'd be out on his ass. That being said, his first words of advice shouldn't be "lockout". Or even the second or third words. Plenty of crap to smear on everybody for this mess.
I just want hockey. Looks like I'll be taking in more Solar Bears games than I had originally planned.
