In a Montreal Gazette article, Lars Eller basically makes a case for the lockout that I and a few others have speculated on in these threads:
“In the big perspective, not only just with this lockout and this CBA but in years to come, if players cave in now and give the owners what they want, then these lockouts will continue CBA after CBA.
“Players need to take a stand and let (owners) know we’re for real. Hopefully, they’ll start to respect us, which I think they don’t right now. That’s the only chance we have that this won’t continue. If we give them what we want, then they know the way (Bettman) is negotiating is working for them. If we cave in now, it will be the same pattern next time.”
It's not just about this lockout, it's about the next lockout as well.
