I don't feel bad for either side, this is what happens in contentious labour disputes. However if you are looking to point a finger at someone it has to be primarily directed towards Bettman and owners. They haven't negotiated in any manner of "good faith" and have tried to ram one sided offers down the player's throats. Players aren't obligated to accept major concessions in virtually all areas in order to further line their billionaire owners' pockets.

I also don't agree with players going overseas to take jobs away from other players who had those spots. Those guys shouldn't be displaced just because some NHL stars are looking for work. If players are that desperate to play and earn a paycheck, arrange their own NHLPA tournaments or something, don't steal jobs.
