The owners are requiring the plAyers to bail them out for bad mistakes they have made in the past. Bad business plan and poor spending habbits. The players know that with the revenue made this year there should be no way for the NHL to not make money if they built this right. Bad business plan and once again the lower people are taking the heat for it.
How about employment that pays them an average of $2.3m for 9 months of work?

I'll be a "lower person" and take all the heat for only $1.5m. (or even less if you push it)
