Only way this lockout will end is if more players speak up.
Exactly, both Hamrlik & Neuvirth are in their final years of their contracts. Hamrlik may end up being one of those guys who never plays again and Neuvirth as an RFA needs this season to prove a better long term contract. With it going down the drain, it leaves them in precarious situations while big name players have or can get a contract when this is all said and done.
Also, Adrian Dater is usually commented on as being a PA schill, but I thought this comment was interesting:
Ray Whitney rips NHL as being run by guys who didn't play game or love it. So you hired Don Fehr why again...?
