Murph's latest article ( with quotes from Shawn Thornton ) make me wonder how informed the players really are :

I just cant fathom why they are so adamant about the 24 percent cutback
NHL isn't seeking a 24% rollback

We have made numerous proposals to their first offer and offered to talk and get nothing back from them.
Well yes they did. They got a 2nd proposal back from the NHL. The NHL just hasn't got anything back from them on that offer

To them, its their first offer and lockout or nothing.
Again, not true. The leagues 2nd offer was different from the first in so many ways

I just dont see how not negotiating achieves anything
Exactly Shawn. Did you have the same thoughts back in January when the league wanted to negotiate and your leaders said "no".

I love Thornton, but hope that his 700 brothers aren't thinking the same thing
