The rosters wouldn't look that bad when you add in the fact that at least half of the players union would jump ship immediately and join teams.
If it happens I would just like to see players who ran their mouth blackballed.
I am not pro owner but if they want to give me a cheaper product and stick it to the whiney ungrateful players that is fine by me.
Most of these guys are just stupid kids who have spent 5 hours a day their entire lives in hockey rinks and should be working for minimum wage or close.
The players could have taken a deal last week and given the fans hockey before Christmas. It was more important that they let Fehr win a PR battle. I'd love to see Jacobs and friends screw them hard. Make a maximum salary in the new NHL something like 2-3 mil.
I don't see it happening with ahl players.. if there was going to be scabs they'd be the north americans playing overseas before this season and some others. I don't see it happening at all since some of those guys wouldn't want that type of backlash if this happened. I mean look at some of the baseball players thats crossed the lines back in 94.. they were shunned.. and i think those guys we're in the right.
