Like other NHLPA members Hamrlik and Neuvirth can and should voice their opinion if they believe the union's negotiating tactics are leading them to the wrong direction. "Union solidarity" is a load of **** if everyone is losing because of it and no one is trying to steer the boat to better waters because of some sort of self-righteous sentiment.

And they're the ones whining? We've all heard about Barch complaining about work conditions while sipping on his wine at his private farm, Toews saying it's all about Bettman wanting to bully the players and White resorting to name-calling.
This is a very short sighted viewpoint. Union solidarity has gotten them to where they are today. They may lose money in the short term, but the less they go backwards now the more they will gain in the end. EVERYONE is taking a hit right now, the last thing the union needs is greedy chicken****s whining because they've missed a few paychecks...go back and play in Europe and don't come back.
