That's the point. These guys are going after Hamrlik now because he voiced his opinion, and because it's different than theirs, guys are allowed to threaten him?

Cole produced those "puck bettman" hats, and some of his fellow PA members said he should stop, but he's going to continue making them anyway.

edit: I realize my point might not be clear. A strike would mean the players refusing to play for 57% of HRR. Given the union immediately agreed to less than that, I cant see an incentive to strike.
I see what you mean. Either way we'd be here next year because then there would never be any reason for the players to negotiate if they're always getting what they want.
