In business, whether the players like it or not, it's the people with the Money that have the power, no matter what Donald Fehr says. This stalemate will drag on until someone in the PA, with any leadership skills, stands up and says, enough is enough, what are we fighting for here???? Jerome Iginla lost $7 million the last lock out, he may lose another $ 7 Mil, this time around, ($14 Mil, total) how is he gaining listening to Fehr??
Long term revenue plan for the players?

Also the power is on the players. Fans don't go to the Molson center to look at big screen and pay 5x the price of a terrible draft beer. Fans pay big money to see the best products in the world play hockey. No best products, no more revenues, no more league. If that's not the case, then investors should go invest millions into the AHL and LNAH.
