From all that I read and see and hear, it sounds like the players are good and ticked off at Bettman and the owners. Bettman's antics (walking out 10 minutes into a session) have backfired this time out. The players feel like they were taken advantage of and are tired of having Bettman bully them.
I doubt many of the guys on the low end of the totem pole are going to be willing to sell their houses or something in order to win this Pyrrhic victory.
Agreed, but the 4th liners are not the ones driving the union.
