I think you might be misunderstanding what I am trying to imply.

Both sides are at fault.

But in my honest opinion, majority of it comes from the union's management. Unions are not what they used to be back then. It is completely different.

Am I siding with the owners and Bettman? Absolutely not. They are at fault here too.

I'm just a life long hockey fan. Without or without it, my life will continue. When it's back I will be more than happy to spend my money on the game. I love hockey and the competitive nature of the game. It's just sad that one side has to be the 'dominant' one. But in reality, the owners/Bettman are the ones with 'real' powers because they have the assets to do so.
