I honestly do not like where this looks to be headed.
IF the PA thinks that that is going to happen, forget it. The owners will just make money doing other things and the players will lose their NHL careers.

If I'm the NHL and the season gets canceled, I'm making it worth my while and eliminating guaranteed contracts. Play for your money you spoiled brats. Earn it every season or lose it.
