I'm siding with the owners. They are the ones who are risking their capital. At the end of the day it's a business and if you're risking money, you should be entitled to make a return on your investment.
It's easy to be an Iginla or a Cammalleri and hold out for more money. But what if you're Tim Jackman? You've made a million playing in the NHL and stand to make another million in the next two years. Nothing is certain after that. You bet he wants every penny of the 550k he stands to make this year.
Honestly, if i were the players i would negotiate until Sept. 15 and then take whatever deal is offered. The lockout hurts the players more than it hurts the owners. They won't recoup what they stand to lose.
