There was a time when the owners got everything they wanted. It was back before the 50's and the NHLPA; a time when players got punished for organizing and when a team owned a player's contract rights until they retired or were traded. It was a time when the All-Star games were held to support a recently retired player because the players earned so little that they had to get summer jobs and even then couldn't support themselves into retirement.

The owners isn't some huge benelovent force and this naivete regarding them that surrounds this forum is kind of telling of something...
