If they want to play hardball, I mean real hardball, that's what I would tell the PA if I was Fehr.
A) Half the players that have signed overseas have come running back because they hate it, like Kyle Turris and Derrick Brassard. If you're going 'home' like the Russians, that's one thing but that doesn't do the North American kids any good.
B) All they'd be doing is vulturing jobs from 'other' people, at a fraction of the salary they'd be making here...some union. And yet if the owners tried to replace them with replacement players they'd be up in arms crying scab.
