The players were accepting all the crazy contract offers last summer, without a peep about idiots or cancers or anything. Nothing about for the good of the game, I'll decline that large amount of money. Nothing about ruining the game. Nothing about big or small markets. Nothing even about the cap, except to increase it.

The players will go after Bettman, but not the owners. They'll go after other owners, but their own. They'll take a stand on principle when the money isn't being offered, but when the money is offered, principle doesn't really exist.

It's all just part of the dance.
