If the owners were mistreating or abusing the players then I would completely stand behind them! But the league trying to realign itself for the longterm good of the game??? Hardly something the players should be standing up against.

Seems to me that this is a necessary step and the PA getting in the way is just costing us a season!!
I can see where by Bettman (Owners) tactics they hope to inflict their version of Communist Hockey rule upon the NHLPA by diminishing player rights/say to their own personal gain, but that is the very reason there is a union in order to prevent this type of strong arm tactics from being condoned and enforced, without legal representation to preserve them.
