i think bobby mac had it pretty much on the money when he cited how you could predict this lockout. the nfl and nba cba's dropped the players % by significant margins. The NHLPA fell apart in the last cba and the hiring of donald fehr was a clear and undeniable sign that the PA was hiring him to do battle.
The players were going to hold the line against the trend set in the NBA and NFL cba's.
I am not sure how that makes the players right. Bob McKenzie is about as even handed a media writer as I know of in any sport.
