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

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

Quote:
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

Quote:
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

Quote:
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
