You have hit this head on the nail with great force and stout hammer. The "blue collar" guys, the players who have the shortest careers, earn the least per contract, and are, in fine, both the largest and the most vulnerable segment of the union's membership, are getting ****ed. Paul Bissonnette should be furious with Fehr and the rest, not cheering them on.
