We just feel at this point the union has done everything they can for us and weíre not getting anywhere. Itís time for us to go in a different direction." http://espn.go.com/blog/nhl/post/_/i...claimer-coming
This was during the sudden silence from the players after the NHL suit, where decertification was claimed to be a negotiation ploy. Horcoff's message might be the most transparent in this whole affair.
