Yeah, they're fighting for the upper 15% of NHLPA members. Mid-tier players (way above Westgarth's level) are falling on their swords so Crosby, Kovalchuk and Ovie can argue that they want a 13+ year deal.
85% (or more) of NHLPA members will see no difference in their contracts nor in their hockey lives.
They ARE just fighting over money, which they are losing every single day by not agreeing to a CBA. (i.e. when anyone says it's not about the money, it's
about the money)
