And if you have so much deep-seeded antipathy toward the players, why do you bother here or with you recreational time and dollars watching or going to games? Go away, find something you can be with rooting for people you respect. If you have so little respect for the people that have dedicated their whole life to the game, that sacrifice their bodies and live for the competition - and instead side with the owners that bought into the game doing something else, fine. Corporations hold annual meetings that are open to the public, and quarterly conference calls you can listen into and learn all about the process of maximizing (near-term) profits. Find your new heroes there. But don't come back here later and talk about how great of a leader Toews is or how tough Bolland is to play against.
You're a company man. The players are the help to you.
For the record, players are not receiving NHL paychecks, but the owners are still getting their salary plus stadium-related income plus other business income. It is what it is, but let's keep it straight.
Well said. I don't mean to call anybody out but the hate on the players here is some times over the top and disproportional. Things have been said like they can jump off the cliff and what not. How can somebody root for the players that they have so little respect for when this thing is settled?
