Maybe that should tell the players something.
And players rights are not being restricted at all. Contract structure is not a player right.
If this lockout is about "showing the NHL that the PA won't back down", and not actually about real issues, then Fehr and the NHLPA are shooting themselves in the foot. The longer this lockout goes on, the more likely it is that we will have these problems again in the future (and more cuts will need to be made), due to the damage and decreased revenue from this time off.
