Cole bullying Hamrlik for having an opinion.

If the NHL as threatening to black ball players that didn't support them you might have a case.

The NHL is using the players short career as leverage to bully them into signing an unfair contract, it matters not how much money the players make.
Using leverage is automatically bullying. These aren't feeble 3rd world factory workers who's families will starve in a lockout.

These are powerful well off people, capable of hiring million dollar+ lawyers, having a heated discussion on equal terms. The owners are withholding pay until they get a deal they want, the players are withholding labour by not signing until they get a deal can accept.

Both sides are just playing hardball.
