I have a much better shot at being a cop then a pro hockey player. I can't even imagine the hard work and dedication it takes to be an elite player like he is. Both work hard, both deserve respect.
He is wrong in saying that the owners want 25% of his salary. They don't. They have said there'd be no rollbacks but Coutures future earnings are not going to be what he'dbe hoping for with a new CBA.

I hate it when professional sports people making millions a year complain. They chose this profession and knew what they were letting themselves in for with regards to travel etc. so no point in complaining.
