The other thing is you do not know how involved those players are, and whether they're simply puppets to DF or not. I don't know them, nor am I there, so I don't have a clue. But it all depends on the individual and how much of the kool-aid they've had. Then you have all the stars backing DF (you know, all those guys who stand to potentially lose big on their massive deals), which could be intimidating to some guys... well Crosby, Ovie, etc all support DF's plan... I should to. It really makes you wonder how united some of the players really are (3rd/4th liners, 4-6 dmen, older guys who only have a few years left, etc).
Malhotra, Westgarth, Parros, Montador, Campoli, Morrison, Darche, Biron, Auld, Dubinsky, Adams, Aucoin, Winnik, Crombeen...which one of these guys are star players who stand to lose their massive deals?
Make Whole is not going to be explained through a media leaked memo...that is the purpose of the private players only conference calls which explains all aspects of each bargaining session in detail. Players can ask all the questions that they want during the conference call.
