I was actually interested in finding out the background of the 18 player attendees today. Here's the breakdown:

13 of the 18 players attended college:
Craig Adams = Harvard
Mike Cammalleri = Michigan
David Backes = Minnesota St
Mathieu Darche = McGill (Canadian college)
Ron Hainsey = UMass Lowell
Shawn Horcoff = Michigan St
Jamal Mayers = Western Michigan
Andy McDonald = Colgate
Ryan Miller = Michigan St
George Parros = Princeton
Marty St Louis = Vermont
Jonathan Toews = North Dakota
Kevin Westgarth = Princeton

- Parros has a degree in economics from Princeton and wrote his thesis on a labor dispute.
- Westgarth's also a Princeton grad in Psychology
- Darche has a business degree from McGill
- Cammalleri has a Sports Management degree from Michigan
- Horcoff has a degree in Finance/Mathematics from Michigan St
- Miller has a Business degree from Michigan St
- St Louis double-majored in Community Development and Applied Economics and Consumer and Advertising
- McDonald graduated with a degree in International Relations
- Mayers has a degree in Marketing

Seems like the right mix of knowledge from the players side in the room. Sure many of the owners have business degrees (obviously) but the perception that the players are stupid/ignorant in terms of the negotiations are uninformed for sure.
