Nothing against the guy, 4th lockout/strike he's "part of", on his last legs, last year on his contract, I'd want to play too if I were him... but he isnt any more/less selfish than the others who are asking for Owners to honour contract they gave to players less than 6 months ago
It's not about selfishness. You could also call 23 year old players selfish against old guys like Hamrlik.

It's easy to miss Hamrlik's point when his opinion is categorized because of his age and what it represents.

He never said: "I want to play, fire Fehr, **** the union"

He said: "Fehr is not getting it done despite of what he said before the negociations"

Ain't that the truth?
