“I still support Fehr, but we as players we need to push him a little bit more and get the best deal possible,” Hamrlik told TSN on Thursday.
“I’m a little bit disappointed in what he (Cole) said. What I do know is he has three years left on his contract and I’m sure he got a nice signing bonus this summer, so I don’t think he didn’t have to sacrifice anything.”
I find the bolded part odd. He's been in the league for 20 years now and he feels financially desperate enough now to whine about a 1 year deal at 3.5M. Where's the rest of his money? He should be whining about the fact that he has almost no more chances at the Stanley Cup he hasn't won yet.
If he was saying that instead complaining jealously about Cole's deal I'd feel for him. But what he has said tells me he's only concerned for himself.
If I'm a player, I can't put Roman Hamrlik's needs ahead of what's best for the players moving forward.
