I'm very pro-union, but even then I always kinda snicker at the argument that fans watch the NHL because of the players. Dude, I've been watching hockey games for 40 yrs. If Sidney Crosby's dad danced all night with Sidney Crosby's mom, instead of knocking her up and creating the latest and greatest, I'd still be watching hockey. These guys are interchangeable, replaceable, and part of the landscape rather than a focus item. I watch the game, I'm a fan of the game. I hope the players get a fair deal, but don't argue that the players are the reason people watch the game.
