I don't understand the hate for players asking for one concession. They aren't asking for "more". They are accepting less, god forbid they determine the pace of their losses.

You don't pay the players any more than you pay a cop. Your ticket money and tax dollars get there eventually, but you pay corrupt owners and corrupt towns first. "Take it or leave it" and "It's my rules" wouldn't fly for one union, why would it fly for another?
Theres also no league to pay the players the amount they will get in the NHL.

Both sides need each other.

"Theres no league without the players" doesn't fly

Unless of course they want to stay in Europe to spite themselves and everyone and make less money..

Man, it will be so great if the players have to end up agreeing to a worse deal than the one just taken off the table.
