While I agree with this, I guess I just see the owners doing the exact same thing, just dressing it up nicer.

In my various reading on this whole **** show, I've read that the NHL was always aiming for something around 50/50. So in a sense, it's their hardline. Their strategy was then to throw out the ridiculous 43 offer initially, so that when they arrive at 50/50, they come up smelling like roses w/ the fans.

It's all ******** in the end. Just interesting to see how public opinion swings around

I'm strongly considering just unfollowing everyone hockey related on Twitter and just ignoring the whole thing the rest of the way
