I'm glad that the writers are injecting their feelings into it. The players have been brainwashed (I suggest reading Scottie Upshall's twitter page if you feel like bashing your head against a wall tonight) and the owners are back to being under a gag order outside of that milquetoast statement...these beat writers are the only ones that have been there and are witnessing it first hand.

It's just sad that things are really this close...and the gap can't be bridged. They're arguing over money that simply isn't going to be there anymore, and they're doing so at the cost of a full season's salary at the very least. It's pathetic, it's maddening, and it's going to make it awfully hard for me to cheer for a lot of these guys again. They're killing my lifelong passion for hockey.
