And the hypocrisy of signing a bunch of contracts in the 48hrs leading up to the lockout and then taking the position that you are poor and shouldn't have to pay those contracts is astounding.

Even Bettman admitted that the optics over the course of the last few weeks leading up to the lockout weren't the best.

Then you get the guys who led that pack sitting on the negotiation committee. I think the players are right to call out their fellow hypocrites.

The saving grace for them may be that they didn't know the details of what was coming, and where the owners will hold the line.
