Now, I do agree that the players distrust Bettman and the NHL brass up top. Honestly, that's a huge hurdle to this getting done. That falls on Bettman's shoulders, and honestly should be considered when it comes time to look at his leadership.

Do the players have to stand up to him? I don't know. If the NHL and the owners are being the bullies, it's up to the players to decide if they get a wedgie or a swirly. Pick your poison I guess. Make less initially now, or lose and entire season of wages only to make less initially.
