I'm sure both the NHL and NHLPA are keeping tabs on the general feeling for the game right now amongst fans via twitter, forums like this, and Blogs....and I don't think that it is a very healthy situation. I've been a fan for over 35 years, and I'm pretty much at the point of telling the NHL/PA to shove it up their collective *****.

Maybe it's just me though.

The players don't care what the fans think and never have. They just want what they feel is entitled to them, and they'll just go on condecending to everyone via twitter as usual in the meantime.

The NHL probably views us as marketing groups or shares. Real people that might get upset? Maybe. But it won't stop them from doing what they feel they need to or hurry them along.

Fans don't get a say, and don't have a voice, and neither side is going to worry about us when there is money to fight over - regardless of where that money comes from.
