The big guns are behind the scenes running the show and making the top dollars they're due.

Every player is acting like their a victim when they got a bigger chunk of the pie than the owners last season by a pretty wide margin.

The players are the front-line of entertainment, as EMPLOYEES of the owners and the NHL.

If the players are so adamant about about making points like this, let them run their own ****ing league.

I know this is an extreme analogy, but it was the only way I could try and make my point.

i can understand that analogy and respect the comparison. He has more power than we all know though, he can't just be a puppet. For him to go into a meeting with 3 or 4 owners and receive 3 different proposals from the PA and immediately turn them down and say he will only work off of their last proposal shows he has the power. I really think he has more power than we think, he has to. And in my opinion i think this is the last starw the past 3 lockouts may not be solely his fault, but someone has got to take the fall, just like a coach or gm would if a team did not succeed.
