Another instance of a guy telling it like it is and being punished (severely) for it.
I disagree. Without the players, there is no NHL. It's not like a company where you can replace a worker with another one who will do the same job. It's not Sidney Crosby who is lucky to be playing with the pens, it's the pens who are lucky to have him. Same for Malkin, Ovechkin, etc. Players = tickets sold, merchandise sold, tv contracts etc. It costs the owners alot of money each year I get that but the profit they make that year are largely due to the players ability to put on a good show that us fans are ready to pay top dollar to go watch.
Now, I'm not saying they are 100% right. They are greedy too. To me, there is no "good side" to this debate. It's still rich people fighting with rich people for more money while the ones who have less money suffers from it. I hate this ****ing lockout
