[OK the guy clearly has an anti-wealthy axe to grind... let's see where he goes with it. He's probably right about Ilitch though; Detroit needs renovation as a city way more than it needs a new hockey arena.]
He doesn't go anywhere with it. I have no doubt many wealthy owners are trying to take take take, but this notion that the owners have taken everything from the players in the last deal and are going for the last "scraps" or however he phrased it is insane. Players' salaries have increased I believe 40% from the last CBA. Players certainly aren't hurting.
