Yea but what about the group that even lets it get to a vote. It seems like there is a small minority fighting for every last cent.

If you're looking for one man to blame: if they'd had a reasonable union rep in charge of the NHLPA side of things, then everyone could have go back to getting rich at the expense of NHL fans months ago. Frankly what these two groups are fighting over is pennies on the dollar, but Fehr has his reputation and was literally hired not to give an inch to the owners, so here we are..
Every offer tabled has the players giving back, it's just how much. How about some of these owners take responsibility for running their business like **** and awarded franchises with short term gains in mind.
