Don't hate them at all. I just call ******** when I see it. I understand that players are looking out for themselves first and foremost. I understand that they will use whatever leverage they can to get the best deal. I don't appreciate several of them endorsing half truths in order to make their cause seem more worthwhile. They're hockey players and unless they can speak intelligently (and I've learned many of them can't), it's best for them to keep their mouth shut and let the guy they hired do the talking for them. I expect Bettman and Fehr to tell half truths and spin tall tales, but it's disappointing and disconcerting to see these players take advantage of their connection with fans in order to spread their propaganda so they don't look like the bad guys. Worry about getting a deal signed instead of publicly vilifying the guys who sign your pay cheques.
