The perils of being part of any Union is that the negotiating committee control the agenda and usually will not let the majority vote on the owners' proposal that the leaders deem unsatisfactory.

Over time we have seen many a National Union Boss tell the local union members who are strike to stand up to the employer and that the offers will be sweetened: end result the employer is not bluffing and the plant is closed for good.

For a good number of the 3rd & 4th liners along with the over 35 crowd, every game lost is money that they will never get an opportunity to earn back as a NHL player.

Time for the rank and file to tell Fehr to cut a deal or take a hike.

Unfortunately the players appear blinded by their detest for Bettman and it is only going to be to their own detriment.
