It's a union that should not be so dis functional. Both sides rely on one another.
No, you're only half right. Yes, without the owners, the players have nothing. But without the players, the owners have their billions and regular income. They have the brand of their team and of the NHL. Worst case scenario, they take their ball and go home, huge tax write off and still enjoy their billions. NHL players lose everything and watch their friends' houses and cars get repo'd, wives leave them, lives ruined. There are no life changing losses for the owners. The players are on the precipice of making a decision that could easily put them in the poorhouse.
