What if Fehr keeps this BS up and they lose a season? Revenue projections go down. The offers get worse. Are the players gunna keep asking to GAIN then? If so, we may never see hockey again.

The sense of entitlement by the players is sickening.

Why hasn't the NHL proposed 20% of HRR and not bothered with RS then?

If that's what they want, then they can sit until they get it if they like but it really makes their "we want to play, but honor our contracts" stance seem disingenuous.

Do you think if the PA accepted the 50/50, this would be over?
