The players are fighting not just for now, but for the future. They also want to break the cycle of lockouts. And they are galvanized by Bettman. Right, wrong or indifferent. If this season is canceled, as many as 5 franchises could be in trouble. And they are mostly the creations of Bettman's expansion. Explain to me how it makes sense whatsoever for the owners to continue down this path?

Point being is that neither side makes any sense at all.
Thats the biggest bunch of baloney going -- the notion that this is some sort of crusade by the PA for the future betterment of the game and the player's association. If that were the case, Fehr would've been pounding on Bettman's door the day he officially become Executive Director, not waiting to negotiate until late summer.

It makes perfect sense, for both side -- its one big money grab. And its our money.
