You don't follow many players on twitter if you think they are lacking a voice.

As for the "imposing the cba then crying over it" I actually have heard very little crying from the owners' side. They don't want to keep the CBA that they (along with the players) agreed to 7 years ago, and they have no obligation to. Players aren't expected to play under the terms of a contract that's expired, why should the owners?

What are the Sakic and Iginla incidents you are referring to?
