Red Wings' Henrik Zetterberg: Players ready for a 'fight' with Gary Bettman, NHL
Asked about the prospect of losing another entire season, Zetterberg slammed commissioner Gary Bettman.
"That would not be fun," Zetterberg said. "But if that's what it takes, that's what it's going to take. I think we did enough last time, in '04. Basically, we gave them everything they wanted, and one of the reasons we did that was that we didn't want to be in this situation again, and here we are again.
"It's the third lockout in I don't know how many years now. Ever since Bettman came into the league offices, that's been his way to handle the stuff. That's not a fun thing, but that's how he approached this. We've been ready. We're ready to have a fight here."
Yeah Hank it won't be fun for anyone.. The players will lose a full year of salary and at the end of the day the owners will still come out on top just like they did in 2004.
