Actually, fighting an antitrust battle probably helps Neuvirth a lot more than fighting the current CBA dispute. He's a young player who has a lot of contracts ahead of him. More competitive free agency could help him find a team that could use his talents if the Caps decide to go with Holtby. I'm understand Neuvirth being frustrated right now, he's fighting to preserve current contracts while he himself doesn't have one beyond this season... but fighting for a better future makes more sense for a talented 24 year old goalie.
