The NHLPA and it's membership are living in some bizarro world. Do they not see the financial crisis currently engulfing pretty much the entire western world. And what a slap in the face to the fans by hiring Donald Fehr, the guy who was behind the cancellation of the 1994 World Series.
I agree about not caring as much and Fehr, but I disagree with the whole bizarro/financial crisis, pity the owners part. They got a more than reasonable deal during the last CBA negotiation, the league is pulling in $3.5 billion and making a tidy profit. If you are going to argue economy and smaller markets hurting, then you should be siding with the players, because they are the ones arguing for $250 million in increased revenue sharing, more than Bettman & co.
