Give the players all they want, just don't let this league turn into the Yankees/Red Sox and the Marlins/Royals.

That said, I still think we have a deal by the end of next week. LeBrun's article nailed it - we know what each side can and can't work with now. It's just a matter of nailing it down, once the posturing is done. It will be hard not to hold a grudge against such flagrant morons like Upshall when this is all done. I'm glad most of the Preds have kept quite.
I could swear I read that comment in 2004. And the players took it back then as well.
