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.
Scab players would not be NHL prospects like Spooner. They'd be overaged guys hanging on in the ECHL or playing in lower tier European Leagues. And no, I would not bother to go all the way to Boston to watch them when I can stay home and watch AHL games for 20 bucks.

And the notion that half the players' union would jump ship is an uninformed fan's fantasy.
