Yah - I agree. I can see the argument the players are making that the NHL aren't compromising enough, and aren't being fair in their demands. Well - life isn't fair sometimes, and negotiating isn't always about compromise and striking a deal both sides are happy with. It's often about who has the most leverage, and in this case, the owners have the leverage.

It might suck to be a player, but it seems to be the reality, and it's not going to change anytime soon.
